Houellebecq in LA!

The LA Weekly has a longish interview/article with French literary terror Michel Houellebecq (by Brendan Bernhard), on the occasion of his visit to LA for the publication of his book on Lovecraft. The article notes that he has a novel forthcoming (in France) this summer entitled “Perhaps There Is an Island”.

I thought this was the funniest bit:

“I am for the muscles,” he now declared in the hotel room. “I would like to have a lot of muscles, because women like it. I’m for bodybuilding, but it’s very exhausting.”

“Perhaps you should dedicate yourself to that,” Lipsyte suggested dryly. “It would surprise people.”

“Me more than anyone,” Houellebecq replied.
