Michel Houellebecq is a French novelist, poet, and literary critic. His novels include the international bestseller THE ELEMENTARY PARTICLES and THE MAP AND THE TERRITORY, which won the 2010 Prix Goncourt. He lives in France.
Surprisingly poignant, philosophically compelling, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, The Possibility of an Island is at once an indictment, an elegy, and a celebration of everything we have and are at risk of losing. It is a masterpiece from one of the world’s most innovative writers.
