Does he note that France is becoming "no longer France".

What do you mean? Hasn't France always been part of North Africa?

Wikipedia says Michel Houellebecq "has been accused of obscenity, racism, misogyny and islamophobia." Do tell, do tell. And the first print run is for 320,000 copies. It seems that his kind of "hate speech" sells these days.

All those nonsense words makes garden variety nihilism sound very romantic, doesn't it.

It's so bad, it makes me pine for existentialism

In the 2011 Lire interview, Houellebecq, who admitted he was “always on the side of the Jews” directed his bile not only at Islam but other “monotheisms” for which he said he felt a “total rejection”. In an interview in August he told French journalists he found “the figure of Christ to be very unpleasant”.

You all should read (the camp of saints) it fortells the current european situation and it did it in 1974 approximatly. If the southern povery law center is against it you know its good.

The Camp of the Saints (French: Le Camp des Saints) is a 1973 French novel by author and explorer Jean Raspail. The novel depicts the destruction of Western civilization through Third World mass immigration to France and the West. Almost forty years after its initial publication, the novel returned to the bestseller list in 2011.[1] On its publication, the book received praise from some prominent conservative French literary figures[2][3] but has been widely criticized or dismissed by both French and English language commentators. It is controversial and has often been denounced as racist and xenophobic, especially due to its anti-immigration themes. The Southern Poverty Law Center has compared the book to The Turner Diaries, attributing its popularity with white nationalists to the plot's parallels with the white genocide conspiracy theory.

He thinks western women are awful and that Muslims are savages. For other awesome French writers, see Celine who invented modern black humor

Houellebecq and Céline happen to be my favourite French authors. Do you know any other related names?

Camus is great. The Plague is a masterpiece and his allegorical reaction to living in France during the outbreak of WWII.

Nope, not off hand. I stopped reading a decade ago. Death on the Installment plan is the best book ever.

I just read his book "whatever". This guy is a genius writer. Back then in the 90s he was writing about men's rights red pill stuff. Now it seems he's taking on globalism and Islam. I am going to make it a point to read all his stuff. He's the best French writer since Camus!

just in case you are wondering, his last name is pronounced "hwee-beck." years ago had an uppity frog correct me with disdain. houellebecq also wrote "elementary particles" and "submission."

Such a breath of fresh air the first time I picked up one of his books. He continues the tradition of Celine.
