Houellebecq went on to contribute to many literary reviews in France. Since 1996, Houellebecqs work has been published by Flammarion, where Raphael Sorin is his editor.
In 1998 Interventions, a collection of chronicles and critical texts, and Les Particules élémentaires («Atomised»), his second novel, were published simultaneously. The latter has since been translated into over 25 languages. In 1999, he collaborated on the screen adaptation of Extension du domaine de la lutte («Whatever»), with Philippe Harel, who directed the film. He also published a new collection of poems, Renaissance. A book of photographs and text about Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, was published in 2000 the same year Houellebecqs first album, Presence humaine was released. On it he sings a number of his poems to the music of Bertrand Burgalat.
Currently he lives in Ireland, near Cork. His forthcoming novel La Tentation dune île will be published in France by Fayard in August 2005.

I always liked Lovecraft, but I couldn't really say why. French novelist Michel Houellebecq (a favorite of Iggy Pop, btw) gives you all the reasons why a closeted, racist... Read morePublished on February 14, 2010 by Frank Gorshin
