By Michel Houellebecq, Frank Wynne
In his new paintings, Michel Houellebecq combines erotic provocation with a terrifying imaginative and prescient of an international teetering among satiety and fanaticism, to create essentially the most surprising, hypnotic, and clever novels in years.
In his early forties, Michel Renault skims via his days with as little human touch as attainable. yet following his father’s demise he is taking a gaggle vacation to Thailand the place he meets a commute agent—the shyly compelling Valérie—who starts to carry this half-dead guy to existence with intercourse of escalating depth and audacity. Arcing with dreamlike swiftness from Paris to Pattaya seashore and from intercourse golf equipment to a terrorist bloodbath, Platform is a superb, apocalyptic masterpiece via a guy who's largely considered as one of many world’s most unique and bold writers.
