Flann O'Brien novel Lost and found

To wit, The New York Times checks in on the case of Flann O’Brien’s admired cult novel The Third Policeman, a copy of which was seen – for a few seconds – on an episode of the hit TV show Lost last fall. “Within two days of the broadcast, 10,000 copies were sold,” says the Times story.
