Submission by Michel Houellebecq( Book )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A controversial, intelligent, and mordantly funny new novel from France's most famous literary figureParis, 2022. Francois is bored. He's a middle-aged lecturer at the Sorbonne and an expert on J. K. Huysmans, the famous nineteenth-century "decadent" author. But Francois's own decadence is considerably smaller in scale. He sleeps with his students, eats microwave dinners, reads the classics, queues up YouPorn. Meanwhile, it's election season. And although Francois feels "about as politicized as a hand towel," things are getting pretty interesting. In an alliance with the socialists, France's new Islamic party sweeps to power. Islamic law comes into force. Women are veiled, polygamy is encouraged, and Francois is offered an irresistible academic advancement - on condition that he convert to Islam. Adam Gopnik in The New Yorker has said of this novel that "Houellebecq is not merely a satirist but - ore unusually - sincere satirist, genuinely saddened by the absurdities of history and the madnesses of mankind." Michel Houellebecq's Submission may be satirical and melancholic, but it is also hilarious; a comic masterpiece by one of France's great novelists

On Lanzarote, it is possible to meet some fascinating human specimens - notably Pam and Barbara, 'non-exclusive' German lesbians.

Or will he join the Azraelian sect, as they prepare for humanity to be regenerated by extraterrestrials? As for our narrator, will he consider his week's holiday on the island a success?
