Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"H. P. Lovecraft, the radical, misanthropic master of the horror genre, now has an impassioned advocate in Michel Houellebecq, Europe's most controversial modern novelist. In his appraisal of Lovecraft's life and work, Houellebecq reveals a surprising debt to the master of "weird fiction." Anyone who's read Houellebecq's Platform or The Elementary Particles will be quick to recognize, unlikely as it might seem at first, the intersection of Houellebecq's deeply cynical worldview with H. P. Lovecraft's incisive and delirious writings. With a new introduction by Stephen King, this translation, the second volume in the Believer Books series, is the first appearance of Houellebecq's book in English. Also included in this volume are two representative stories by H. P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu" and "The Whisperer in Darkness.""--BOOK JACKET.
