Michel Houellebecq

Houellebecq in 2008 Michel Houellebecq (; born Michel Thomas; 26 February 1956 or 1958) is a French author, known for his novels, poems and essays, as well as an occasional actor, filmmaker and singer.

His first book was a biographical essay on the horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. Houellebecq published his first novel, ''Whatever'', in 1994. His next novel, ''Atomised'', published in 1998, brought him international fame as well as controversy. ''Platform'' followed in 2001. He published several books of poetry, including ''The Art of Struggle'' in 1996.

After an offhand remark about Islam during a publicity tour for ''Platform'' led to his being taken to court for inciting racial hatred (he was eventually cleared of all charges), he moved to Ireland for several years. He then moved back to France, where he currently resides. He has been described as "France’s biggest literary export and, some say, greatest living writer."

In 2010, he published ''The Map and the Territory'', which won the prestigious Prix Goncourt. Then, in 2015, came ''Submission'', which again sparked controversy for its depiction of Islam. In 2019 he published ''Serotonin''. Provided by Wikipedia
