No surprise why masterful American novelists would want to read this. Olga seemed deep in contemplation of her pressed lobster. The other main characters — Jed himself, his father, his Russian girlfriend and his dealer — are by contrast sympathetically treated.
A chaque nouveau roman, Houellebecq me surprend. Books by Michel Houellebecq. I read in other reviews this isn’t the one to start with.
La Carte et le Territoire by Michel Houellebecq
But the most amazing thing caete that in spite of a main character who is very Finally a map of Houellebecq territory. Edited by Antoine JurgaSabine van Wesemael.
Is this a fictional version of Houellebecq?
Could Houellebecq be cooking a snook at his readers? Jed first photographed still life, then machine parts. The Map and the Territory French: She had said nothing for at least a minute when she lifted her head, looked him straight in the eyes, and asked: He has a prostitute girlfriend named Genevieve.
A must for fans and a cxrte introduction, too. The author seems proud he’s alienating you, else why talk so unashamedly of his body odor and care manners?
There’s no more place for enthusiasm, belief, and faith, and there remains just gentle resignation, a sad and reciprocal pity, the useless but correct sensation that something could have happened, that you pe simply showed yourself unworthy of this cartf you had been offered.
Es como si Houellebecq escribiera con desgana. If you want something to sum up Houellebecq, then it’s the early phrase “scarcely insufficient”, very much a glass half-empty view of the world, where others might have posited “easily sufficient”.
There are some very original plot details, interesting takes on photography and contemporary art, a bit of a meander on architecture, and plenty of information on cartography for those of us who loves maps. This houellebfcq the first Houellebecq novel I’ve read, so I am curious to investigate the others. The one layer he misses on his palette is an ability with words, so he seeks after commissioning one Michel Houellebecq to write the programme notes for his upcoming exhi Michel Houellebecq is the subversive satirist supreme.
They had several happy weeks.
Houellebecq the writer steered us back onto the tedious track, to completely evaporate by the time of the most anticlimactic and trite denouement. It’s how he meets the delightful Olga. No surprise why masterful American novelists would want to read this.

Except it doesn’t really. This second story has very little to do with the main plot line of Jed’s work life. Houellebecq would no doubt approve. OK, if I have to be completely blunt, Michel Houellebecq must be the most overrated contemporary author since Amelie Nothomb. So what makes a good artist Jed Martin?
When I read ‘Plateforme’ some years ago, I dismissed Houellebecq as being overrated, and a complete misogynist, but I’ve changed my mind after reading La Carte et le Territoire.
