The Possibility of an Island - Michel Houellebecq

This picture was taken from a plane, somewhere in Europe, 2004.

Michel Houellebecq is a French novelist.

The Possibility of an Island was published originally in French (La possibilité d'une île) in 2005.

A film based on the novel La Possibilité d'une île premiered in France on September 2008. The film was directed by Houellebecq himself.

"We no longer really had the opportunity to go out, nor the taste for it. And then there are lots of things to do, formalities, steps to take...the shopping, the laundry. We need more and more time to look after our health, as well, simply to maintain the body in more or less working order. After a certain age, life becomes administrative - more than anything."

"And love, where all is easy,
Where all is given in the instant;
There exists in the midst of time
The possibility of an island."
