¿Novelista o propagandista de la novela?
"Is Michel Houellebecq really a novelist, or is he just a novelizing propagandist? Though is thought can be slapdash and hasty, its is at least earnest, intensely argued, and occasionally thrilling in its leaps and transitions. (At times, he resembles the theorist Slavoj Zizek, who is all wattage and not enough light). But formal structures that are asked to dramatize these ideas -the escenes, characters, dialogue, and so on- are generally flimsy and diagrammatic... In this respect, "The Map and the Territory" is undeniably richer than any of Houellebecq's previous works".
