From the Publisher

An international literary phenomenon, The Elementary Particles is a frighteningly original novel-part Marguerite Duras and part Bret Easton Ellis-that leaps headlong into the malaise of contemporary existence.

Bruno and Michel are half-brothers abandoned by their mother, an unabashed devotee of the drugged-out free-love world of the sixties. Bruno, the older, has become a raucously promiscuous hedonist himself, while Michel is an emotionally dead molecular biologist wholly immersed in the solitude of his work. Each is ultimately offered a final chance at genuine love, and what unfolds is a brilliantly caustic and unpredictable tale.

Translated from the French by Frank Wynne.

Seller Comments:

8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. 264 pp.; 21 cm. Tight, clean copy. Light edgewear to wraps, age toning. Remarkable French novel. "In a firestorm of controversy, l'affaire Houellebecq has spread throughout Europe and beyond, with translations of the book undertaken in nearly thirty countries around the world. The central characters, Bruno and Michel, were born to a bohemian mother (but they had different fathers, of course) at the height of the sixties. Following her inevitable divorce, they endured separate childhoods and developed distinct identities. Bruno--a failure to his own family and literary calling--is pursued by sexual obsession and madness. Michel--a wholly asexual molecular biologist--expresses his disgust with society by engineering one that frees mankind at last from its uncontrollable, destructive urges. An international phenomenon, The Elementary Particles is a furiously important novel. / A poet and novelist, Michel Houellebecq is the author of one previous novel, Whatever (Extension du domaine de la lutte). His awards include the Grand prix national des lettres and, for The Elementary Particles, the Prix novembre. He lives in Ireland."-Publisher.
