  1. H.P. LOVECRAFT AGAINST THE WORLD, AGAINST LIFE
    $19.95

    Part biographical sketch, part pronouncement on existence and literature, the best-selling French novelist Michel Houellebecq's essay was published in France in 1991 and is the first non-fiction work by France's most famous contemporary author. He praises his American alter ego’s style, which couldn't be less like his own. Plus a fascinating  13-page (!) foreword by Lovecraft admirer Stephen King. This eloquently translated edition is an insightful introduction to both Lovecraft’s dark mythology and Houellebecq’s deadpan prose.
