LONGLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BOOKER PRIZE 2020

A powerful criticism of modern life by one of the most provocative and prophetic writers of our age

Florent-Claude Labrouste is dying of sadness. Despised by his girlfriend and on the brink of career failure, his last hope for relief comes in the form of a newly available antidepressant that alters the brain's release of serotonin.

When he returns to the Normandy countryside in search of serenity, he instead finds a rural community left behind by globalisation and red-tape agricultural policies, with local farmers longing for an impossible return towhat they remember as a golden age.

'Despite its provocations, this is a novel of romantic and sorrowful ideas: Houellebecq as troubadour, singing lost loves' Rachel Kushner

Michel Houellebecq has good claim to be the most interesting novelist of our times . . . E xhilarating in its nihilism, often very funny and always enjoyable' Evening Standard
