Michel Houellebecq To Star As Himself In Film About His 'Kidnapping'
"He is French literature's perpetual enfant terrible
, with a reputation for bolshy rebelliousness and causing offence. So when Michel Houellebecq, hailed as France's greatest living novelist, failed to turn up for part of a promotional book tour in the Netherlands and Belgium in 2011, it might have been brushed aside as a mere quirk or oversight."
