The Third Policeman

Something to look forward to from Keith

I have just re-purchased a book called "The Third Policeman" by Flann O'Brien that I recalled as having some "bike literature" - it's better than that, it's basically all about bikes.  Anyway I'll circulate it when I've finished - John at least should appreciate it as it's a forerunner of Spike Milligan's books (eg Puckoon) - anyway here's a short extract to whet the appetite.

The Atomic Theory

 "The gross and net result of it is that people who spent most of their lives riding iron bicycles over rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who nearly are half people and half bicycles."
