michel houellebecq

london 7.56am 11.6C monday 2015.

have not heard of this guy, with his unpronounceable surname, but this interview certainly makes me want to read his books. it is strange that i am not aware of him, seeing he is something to do with the charlie hebdo massacre. he was featured on the cover of the magazine, and his latest novel came out for sale on that fateful day.

 he writes in french, so whatever i read will be the translated version in english. a bit more of him here.

    Houllebecq *pronounced: Well-beck* is the darling of the French intelligensia. Probably worth reading so as to at least be informed of about all the controversy!

      thanks for letting me know how it is pronounced. dont think there is an equivalent figure in the english world. at least i could not think of any living writer in english that merits that title.
