The Next Thing →

This is not to say that Islam in France won’t continue to be problematic or that the extreme right won’t continue its rise or that the respectable republicans won’t be as fatuously self-destructive as Houellebecq imagines them to be. The next thing is just never likely to be the same thing. The fun of satire is to think what would happen if nothing happens to stop what is happening. But that’s not what happens.

Michel Houellebecq — professional satirist, enculé — wrote a new book. You can buy it in its original French version here. My copy is on its way.
