*The Map and the Territory*

That is the new Michel Houellebecq book, available from UK Amazon, out January in the US.  It is worth the shipping costs.  Yet, while waiting for it to arrive, I saw a copy on sale in Rome, above a PPP price.  In my desire to read it sooner rather than later I bought it, that was worth it too.  It’s worth both prices put together, and then some, at pretty much any dollar/euro exchange rate or any dollar/pound sterling exchange rate, you can imagine.

I was relieved to see that Houllebecq understands the connection between his ideas and those of Charles Fourier (an underrated thinker).
