Editorial Reviews

Texture
“ The Dalkey Archive is witty, sly, outrageous, and the characters remind one at times of Nabokov or De Vries.”
Anthony Burgess
“Flann O'Brien is unquestionably a major author. His work, like that of Joyce, is so layered as to be almost Dante-esque . . . Joyce and Flann O'Brien assault your brain with words, style, magic, madness, and unlimited invention.”
Chicago Tribune
“Dalkey Archive [Press] has made one reader very happy and likely will intoxicate many others with Flann O'Brien's fine brew of malt, salt, air, heady ideas and rich, ripe prose.”
Boston Sunday Globe
“It is increasingly clear that O'Brien is Ireland's finest novelist after Joyce.”
The New York Times
Wit, humor, satire, the exact fall of a Dublin syllable, the ear for the local turn, the flight of fancy that can spin into a Dublin joke or a Limerick limerick--all these are his.
