Re: Soumission (Submission) - Controversial new French novel

There is a trend in France around the lost identity. You should also read Eric Zemmour "le suicide franšais" (the french suicide) and Alain Finkelkraut "l'identitÚ malheureuse" (the unhappy identity). All these authors tend to link french decline to the multiculturalism with a strong focus on immigrants from Africa. All of these authors were accused at some point with neocolonialism and racism. They have a natural tendency to focus on islam and stir islamophobia.
Houellebecq is a natural provocateur and wrote a novel promoting sex-tourism and islamophobia.
