I read this book at the library about a week ago What follows are my notes as I was reading this bookA brilliant studyfirst published in France in 1991 and translated into English a few years agoevocatively written like a novelLovecraft created a great popular myth which is rare in literatureof the Great Old Ones Houellebec writes they have heard the roars of the very first mammals and will know the howls of agony of the very last Contrasts the approach of HP Lovecraft with other writers Richard Matheson might start a story with the uotidianLovecraft does notA possible shortcoming of Lovecraft's works the protagonists take long to understand the menacethey may even seem cluelessHouellebec observes that Lovecraft in his fiction makes no allusion to sex or moneyEroticism doesn't mix well with Lovecraftian fictionThe only human sentiments that Lovecraft is interested in are wonderment and fearThe sole function of the protagonists in Lovecraft's stories is to perceiveLovecraft's stories tries to give an impression of objectivity he utilizes math and the sciences; gives the longitude and latitude of locations and the dates and times of eventsIt is clear that Lovecraft was a racisthis experience looking for a job in New York along with immigrants he detestedin his letters he decribes Italico Semitico Mongolids in terms like the hideous creatures of his weird fictionThe role of his racial hatred in his fiction has often been underestimatedLovecraft was married for a few years and this appears to be the happiest time of his lifeAfter Houellebec's text are two stories by Lovecraft The Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer in Darkness

Full review can be found at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercomFor Americans who don't know there's this French dude named Michel Houellebec who a lot of Europeans are super pissed at And that's because he's a writer see a brilliant one who also happens to be a misanthrope and who sincerely despises just about 98 percent of all humanity and takes great care to detail all the ways they deserve his hatred in his provocative novels which have all been big hits in Europe but virtually unknown here unsurprisingly enough And this includes 2001's sex tourism farce Platform which has just some incredibly unkind things to say about Muslims as well as Jews Christians atheists women men the old the young and anyone else who breathes oxygen; so much so that a group of Muslims decided to take him to court in Europe for attempting to incite racially based violence And the lawsuit became a continental sensation not the least of which was because of Houellebec being in court each day and affecting the exact haughty bored superior tone and look throughout the proceedings that got him into trouble in the first place; for refusing to apologize for refusing to say you must've misunderstood me for acting like the entire lawsuit was beneath him to begin with and proof of what a bunch of moronic meatsacks humanity actually is And this of course turned him into an even bigger sensation in Europe than he already was which of course was also routinely ignored by the press here in the US so that to this day barely any Americans at all know who Houellebec is or why so many people are angry at himWell except McSweeney's that is the small press started by literary wunderkind Dave Eggers which in the 1990s became the posterchild not only for American hipster intellectuals but also for the power of daily digitally distributed original content years before the term blog had even been invented Their organization which also includes the anti poser lit crit publication The Believer has become well known for introducing global authors to a grateful American audience; in fact one could argue that they are almost single handedly responsible for the US popularity of Haruki Murakami So when Believer Books recently got a chance to reprint Houellebec's very first full length manuscript in English form for the first time plus managed to convince horror icon Stephen King to write a new introduction I have to imagine that they almost peed in their pants jumping at it; the result is the extended literary essay HP Lovecraft Against the World Against Life originally written in 1988 a slim tone which much like Nicholson Baker's U I is partly an analysis of a particular writer's oeuvre in Baker's case John Updike partly a gushing love letter as to why they like these particular authors so much And make no mistake; if you're already familiar with Houellebec's fictional work the essay will also suddenly make his own motivations and aims so much clearer and make you understand his own work so much better tooAs a matter of fact

It was interesting Nothing new but all very laconic and on point Especially that Houellebec unlike some other fanboys is not in denial about Lovecraft's racism he's specifically naming it and analyzing it
