a quote from this annoying article in the uk sunday times billed as a review of houellebecq’s new novel which has not been translated into english yet. it weirdly spends a lot of time on the accuracy’ of houellebecq’s prophecies’ but it seems to me the way the world is in 2022 you could have imagined virtually any kind of doom scenario not involving a meteor and it would have become reality allowing you to claim clairvoyant powers.

NB i did plan to air my views on fellatio, and houellebecq’s obsession with it, as well as on the fact that the writer of the article deems it necessary to mention it several times, but i’ll leave it for another time thus giving you, the regular reader of this poor excuse for a blog, something to look forward to — or not, as the case might be.
