Descrizione articolo


Houellebecq's new novel tells the story of an attempt to create a package-holiday company for sex-tourists. Less philosophical and grandly ambitious than Atomised, it is, if anything, even more outrageously funny and bitingly satirical of the ways we live now than the earlier novel. Added to which, there is a genuinely moving love affair, real characters and a real plot!


Houellebecq's Atomised is a hard act to follow. A ludicrously ambitious novel about the failings of contemporary society which compelled and shocked at the same time, the book received ample coverage, high sales for a work of literary fiction and won the lucrative Impac award. Platform shares much in common with its predecessor but, if anything, the work is more uncompromising. Michel, an administrator in a Paris art gallery, takes a holiday in Thailand following his father's murder. What follows is a travelogue with a difference, casting a cold eye on the narrator as well as his fellow package holiday tourists, and taking in Emmanuel Kant, economic theory, Agatha Christie, sexual politics and even a socially-conscious pornographic film entitled Senior Citizens on the Rampage.
