Product Details


“A real writer, with the true comic spirit.”
—James Joyce

“Unquestionably a major author . . . Flann O’Brien assault[s] your brain with words, style, magic, madness, and unlimited invention.”
—Anthony Burgess

“O’Brien was one of the comic geniuses of the 20th century.”

At Swim-Two-Birds has remained in my mind ever since it first appeared as one of the best books of our century. A book in a thousand . . . in the line of Ulysses and Tristram Shandy.
—Graham Greene

At Swim-Two-Birds is both a comedy and fantasy of such staggering originality that it baffles description and very nearly beggars our sense of delight.”

“[The Third Policeman is] the funniest book ever written . . . and scariest.”

The Poor Mouth shows a comic genius working close to his best capability. Humor of this quality, this intensity, is very rare; as witty in its language as in its invention, it cries to be read aloud.”
