Since I live too far away to attend the Lost Reading Club, I had to read its inaugural book, Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman on my own. The book is odd, but odd in a wonderful way. The narrator weaves his way through the world in search of the bounty from a murder he was a party to, referring to the fictional physicist deSelby (and his absurd theories) along the way. Full of intricate wordplay and humor, this is one of the better books I have ever read.
My next book is Making Stuff & Doing Things, by Kyle Bravo.
