French writer, poet, essayist, novelist and filmmaker. Michel Houellebecq was named a 'pop star of the single generation' and is one of the most prominent French writers at the turn of the twenty-first century. His novels, which have been translated into more than thirty languages, frequently incite critiques, debates, and even trials. Literary critics have labeled Michel Houellebecq's novels 'vulgar', 'pamphlet literature', and 'pornography'; he has been accused of obscenity, racism, misogyny and islamophobia. In 2000 he moved to Ireland and in 2002 to Spain.
He was abandoned by his parents in early childhood, left to be raised by grandmothers.
His novel The Map and the Territory won the Goncourt Prize.
Several of his books were adapted to films and plays.
