LOVE

 Michel Houellebecq interviewed in the Paris Review; http://www.theparisreview.org/interviews/6040/the-art-of-fiction-no-206-michel-houellebecq



INTERVIEWER;

What is your concept of the possibility of love between a man and a woman?


HOUELLEBECQ;

I’d say that the question whether love still exists plays the same role in my novels as the question of God’s existence in Dostoyevsky.

INTERVIEWER;

Love may no longer exist?

HOUELLEBECQ;

That’s the question of the moment.

INTERVIEWER;

And what is causing its disappearance?

HOUELLEBECQ;

The materialist idea that we are alone, we live alone and we die alone. That’s not very compatible with love.
