Whatever (Serpent's Tail Classics)

Michel Houellebecq


"Houellebecq captures exactly the cynical disillusionment of disaffected youth."—Booklist

"This boy wishes critical remedy. He could be past help."—The Washington Post

Just thirty, with a well-paid task, melancholy and no love lifestyles, the narrator and anti-hero par excellence of this grim, humorous, and smart novel smokes 4 packs of cigarettes an afternoon and writes bizarre animal tales in his spare time.

A painfully life like portrayal of the vanishing freedom of a global ruled by way of technology and by means of the empty rituals of day-by-day life.

Michel Houellebecq is a multi-award-winning French writer. He at the moment lives in Spain.
