One of the most controversial figures in contemporary literature; agronomist, poet, filmmaker, award-winning writer: Michel Houellebecq is a man of many talents. And now, in what must surely be the high point of his career so far, the Frenchman has his very own SMP playlist.
Houellebecq has another connection to music. In 2009, Iggy Pop released an album influenced by the writer's novel the Possibility of an Island.
For more Houellebecqian music, check out this mixtape created by SMP user mindlesspleasures.
