    His real name is Michel Thomas. In 1991 he published Howard P. Lovecraft, Against the world, against life, but also The pursuit of happiness (Tristan-Tzara Prize).
    But it was seven years later that he gained notoriety with Les particules élémentaires, a book that provoked controversy. Forced into exile in Ireland and then in Spain, he tried his hand at poetry with Configuration du dernier rivage.

    Then came six works, often sulphurous, such as Plateforme, La carte et le territoire and Soumission.

    Submission Houellebecq

    It’s 2022. François is bored. He’s a middle-aged lecturer at the New Sorbonne University and an expert on J. K. Huysmans, the famed nineteenth-century novelist associated with the Decadent movement. But François’s own decadence is of considerably smaller scale. He sleeps with his students, eats microwave dinners, and watches YouPorn.
