In this prescient work, Michel Houellebecq focuses his considerable analytical skills on H. P. Lovecraft, the seminal, enigmatic horror writer of the early 20th century. Houellebecqs insights into the craft of writing illuminate both Lovecraft and Houellebecqs own work. The two are kindred spirits, sharing a uniquely dark worldview. But even as he outlines Lovecrafts rejection of this loathsome world, it is Houellebecqs adulation for the author that drives this work and makes it a love song, infusing the writing with an energy and passion not seen in Houellebecqs novels to date.
