The Art of Struggle by Michel Houellebecq: A Dual-Language Book

Product Description

The Art of Struggle by Michel Houellebecq: A Dual-Language (Parallel Text) Book  

 Winner of the Prix De Flore

Notorious as a novelist, Michel Houellebecq was first known in France as a poet. In many ways it is through poetry that he found his novelist's voice. "The Art of Struggle" is a collection of prose and verse pieces which investigate issues of alienation, individualism and disillusionment - themes that will be familiar to Houellebecq readers - while subtly adopting a variety of tones and styles, revealing facets of the author unknown until now in the English-speaking world. Deeply melancholic and despairing at the inhumanity of the present-day world, yet brimming with vitality and invention, these timely, poignant poems clear away the dross of hollow optimism and call for an end to the nightmare of modern existence.

The Art of Struggle by Michel Houellebecq - About the author

Michel Houellebecq lives in County Cork, Ireland. He is the bestselling author of the Atomised, Platform and Whatever and The Possibility of an Island. He is also a poet, essayist and rap artist.
