A novel with Michel Houllebecq as author & contemporary art world as main theme certainly couldn’t escape our attention and curiosity. A truly brilliant read, all the more enjoyable for everyone familiar with the environment. Ending it is a sad experience, both for knowing that the pleasure of the read is over as well as for realizing how much of its underlying nihilism applies to your own existence.

To get you into the mood of the story, you can read some interesting reviews of the book from the Guardian and the Wall Street Journal.
