Michel Houellebecq

La Carte et le Territoire


«Rendre compte du monde, simplement rendre compte du monde» : voilà ce que répond l'artiste Jed Martin lorsqu'on l'interroge sur le sens de son œuvre. Ce projet, qui lui apportera la fortune et une renommée internationale, l'amènera à croiser des personnages très divers : Olga, une jolie Russe, mais aussi le commissaire de police Jasselin, le présentateur de télévision Jean-Pierre Pernaut, et même l'écrivain Michel Houellebecq, dont Jed réalisera le portrait...

Roman réaliste qui tend vers l'anticipation, roman d'artiste qui flirte avec l'autofiction et s'achève en roman policier, La Carte et le Territoire brouille les pistes et estompe la frontière entre fiction et réalité. Dans cette œuvre à la construction virtuose, récompensée par le prix Goncourt en 2010, Michel Houellebecq mène une profonde réflexion sur notre monde contemporain et le rapport que nous pouvons encore avoir - ou non - avec la vérité.
