Houellebecq, Islam, & the Jews:
A Review of Michel Houellebecq’s Soumission

2,870 words

Fu8QH0Michel Houellebecq’s latest novel, Soumission, has attracted enormous attention. The book portrays the coming to power of an Islamist president in France in 2022 and has predictably been condemned as Islamophobic. The timing of the Charlie Hebdo massacres – a few disgruntled French-born Muslims murdering left-liberal cartoonists and Jews – could not have been better in terms of boosting sales. Indeed, Soumission is already that rarest of things: a succès européen (rather than our usual pan-European cultural fare of Hollywood blockbusters and degenerate Anglo pop music). Read more …

The Loved One

TheLovedOne1,455 words

The Loved One (1965) is my all-time favorite comedy. Based on a 1948 novel of the same name by Evelyn Waugh, The Loved One stands alongside Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood (the book and the movie) as a savagely on-target, dark comic satire on American Protestant civilization.

Both Waugh and O’Connor, of course, were Catholic. Read more …

“Je ne suis pas Charlie”
(Spanish Translation)

1,067 words

charlie-hebdo-une-14309_w1000English original here

Como todos los demás comentando en la Masacre de Charlie Hebdoi  no sé casi nada de aquella publicación excepto por la publicidad que ha recibido desde el ataque. Por lo que puedo observar parece sobresalir en dibujos satíricos de una desatinada y tremendamente no divertida variedad.  A pesar del hecho de que estaría en contra de la mayoría de sus puntos de vista editoriales todavía siento que lo que pasó en parís el 7 de enero es terriblemente triste.

“Je ne suis pas Charlie”

1,051 words

charlie-hebdo-une-14309_w1000Translations: CzechNorwegianPortuguese, Spanish

Like almost everyone else commenting on the Charlie Hebdo massacre I know next to nothing about that publication save for the publicity it has received subsequently. From what I can gather it appears to excel in satirical cartoons of a rather blunt and not terrifically funny variety. Despite the fact that I would be opposed to most of its editorial viewpoints I still feel that what happened in Paris on January 7th is terribly sad. Read more …

Heidegger at Neverland Ranch

HC3

“This is Karl-Heinz Rudiger Gunther Schraeling, The famous nineteenth-century German Philosopher.”

The second chapter of a novel, Heidegger in Chicago (a comedy of errors). (Chapter 1 here.)

When Heidegger awakened, he thought that someone was slapping him on his left cheek. Then he realized that he was lying on a vinyl car seat, and the car was going down a bumpy road.

It was night. Heidegger sat up slowly. His limbs were stiff. He had no idea how long he had been out, Read more …

The first chapter of a novel, Heidegger in Chicago (a comedy of errors)

Chinchilla Heatherton stared up at the man behind the lectern. “He reminds me of my father,” she thought. He too had legs that could bend in the middle, enabling him to sit on objects smaller than himself. He too had colored orbs embedded in his head, enabling him to register light waves refracted off the surface of objects. He too had a hole below the orbs, from which sounds emerged.

Heidegger in San Francisco

A short story by Jef Costello

The lesbians of Berkeley can strip a man to the bone in thirty seconds. At least, that was what Heidegger had heard. They lumbered around the U.C. Berkeley campus, their large, pale, shapeless bodies suspended in boiler suits. Land manatees with buzzcut heads full of raised consciousness. One of them dropped a few quarters into the cup of coffee Heidegger was holding as he stood on Telegraph Avenue, trying to find his bearings. He had not been enjoying the coffee anyway. Read more …
