Adam Gopnik in The New Yorker has said of this novel that "Houellebecq is not merely a satirist but--more unusually--a sincere satirist, genuinely saddened by the absurdities of history and the madnesses of mankind.

Submission

What prevents me from reading Houellebecq and watching von Trier is a kind of envy — not that I begrudge them success, but by reading the books and watching the films I would be reminded of how excellent a work of art can be, and of how far beneath that level my own work is. This is the novel's big joke.

It's designed to agitate the right by suggesting the right may have a point about the erosion of France's national culture, and to tweak the left by lending ironic credence to the right's fears. The only time Houellebecq seems not to be joking is when Francois speaks about literature. Whatever it says or doesn't say about Europe and Islam, Submission is a love letter to the novel itself.

Houellebecq writes on shifting sands. But I think he might just be permanent.

His goal in this quasi-dystopian novel is to cast a light on contemporary French society and the deficiencies he perceives and to suggest that the future he predicts isn't wholly beyond the realm of possibility. A challenging satire that, at its best, is subtler than its author's reputation might lead you to expect.

What Houellebecq has done in Submission is hold up a mirror to his readers. The charge is that he inflames animosity by depicting a Muslim-influenced France as something of which Europeans should be frightened.

But he puts readers and critics in the position of having to specify what exactly is frightening about this France. Mark Heim, The Christian Century.

Messy slaughterer of sacred cows. Disembowler of all modes of political correctness, from the myth of the modern male's respect for women to the laughable fiction of the liberal Westerner's respect for non-Western cultures.

That's the story, anyway. Like most good stories, it isn't true, for the most part. But it's not a slaughterhouse. It's a upper-middle-class supermarket, brightly but not harshly lit, stocked with sushi, expensive cheeses, organic vegetables, olive oils, and honeys.

It's not food for thought. It's an empty stomach.

It's heartbreaking. It's utopia. Perhaps the highest achievement of [ Submission ] is the way it manages to be a satire with a core of deep humanism running through it.

Houellebecq has always been provocative, especially in his depictions of women. With Serotonin, this treatment flies decisively against the prevailing winds.

Though pretty terrible on women, Houellebecq is better on economics. He also remarks at one point on the fact that some Parisians can earn more money renting out their inherited apartments than they would by having actual jobs.

The tension between inherited wealth and generated income is one of the key questions for the French economy today. In Serotonin, power and powerlessness—emotional, sexual, political, economic—are big motifs. But Houellebecq has captured something in his trajectory from the alt-weekly to the alt-right.

Maybe he is a visionary after all. And his is a grim vision indeed.
