Abstract:

Flann O'Brien's most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder. Weird, satirical, and very funny, its popularity has suddenly increased after the novel was featured in the 5 October 2005 episode of the hit television series Lost. The series' creators have said that anyone who has read the book "will have a lot more ammunition when dissecting plotlines" of the show. Here it comes to life in a new unabridged recording. Even with Ulysses and Finnegans wake behind him, James Joyce might have been envious" wrote one critic about the work of Flann O'Brien.
