Can someone suggest some contemporary French writers like Houellebecq? I read most of Soumission in French before it came out here and found the prose pretty readable. Please do not recommend the Stranger, Bonjour Tristesse, etc. I prefer novels published since at least the 90's.
Nonexistent. Don't try it or you'll be very disappointed if you're familiar with the XXth century French authors.
Stick to pre-2000 writers.
I'm under that impression too. Most of it seems to be terrible "autofiction." I'm curious mostly because Soumission was fairly easy to read and was curious to find out if there were any other writers in French worth reading now.
2084 by Sansal is literally just a better version of Submission.

Echenoz, Michon and Quignard are the best living French writers.

You really should.

Both girls have nice feet.

Sorry my french film-derived fetish is bobcuts, not feet
Thank you for the suggestions. I've only heard of Echenoz. I'll take a look.
>that open mouth
makes my boner even harder
It's Frederic Beigbeder then. Houellebecq actually wrote the foreword for one of his books. Start with 99 francs.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I found him at a library and enjoyed what I read, but didn't borrow the book due to lack of free time. Thank you.
Modiano is good. Lots of atmosphere.
Is contemporary French literature anything like contemporary French film? You know, pornography disguised as art house films like that awful Gaspar Noe shitfest.

It's a good but very simple movie: girl meets girl, girl has girl, girl loses girl. People just made a big to-do about it because there's some lezzing out.
Its a great movie, sex scenes are probably a 3% of the film
is this how lesbians actually do it? it looked like the most awkward sex i have ever seen. their movements dont make any sense and never sync up.

I tried but i could not fap to this. honestly just two naked women mechanically moving around like that was fucking gross.
if you want better lesso romance check out
all over me
or but i'm a cheerleader

also, what tumblr gender am I?
I am straight male but I am only aroused by lesbians. every romantic relationship I have been in, every crush i have had, she's been a lesbian.
you are a latent lesbian, obviously.
cutting off my dick would solve all of my problems then? or should i guilt trip them into accepting that I am just transgender but refuse to undergo surgery to suit their ignorant concept of a woman.

Beigbeder? Is this /lit/? The elitist literature board and stuff?
"Nouvelles sous ecstasy" is definitely the worst piece of fiction I ever read. I was cringing the whole time reading it. I hardly found a single sentence that wasn't garbage.
Beigbeder is the laughing stock of french contemporary literature guys... Please don't.
/lit/ is only genuinely (in effect) elitist about english language lit. Those who aren't natives are understandably ignorant of foreign writers' home status, which is why you'll notice many here actually praising Houellebecq (of whom you couldn't say that he is a laughing stock in france, politically motivated critics aside, so much as a... shrugging stock, I guess)
Do the second, it's funnier.

Good luck.
Amelie Nothomb; I started Fear and Trembling a Fee days ago

Michon is absolutely excellent

how many neckbeards right now feel the sharp pain that they will never have/could have never had real youth of/with Adele (both of actress and of the film)?

why did you have to post it
Both are meh tier and stupidly annoying.
Did anyone read last year's Goncourt winner, Boussole?
If you want to know, check Juan Asensio's blog to get some recs, he's an asshole but has great tastes and sometimes talks about nice contemporary authors from France.
Laurent Binet, in particular his La septième fonction de la langue.
*du langage (my bad)
>he tastes bad but has a great asshole
That's it, no more speedreading for me.

>the Stranger, Bonjour Tristesse
These books are worth a read though definitely not canon but on a side note, I do want to say that these are two good books for when you're learning French. The author of the latter wrote a lot of works that are good for practicing the language.
>Bonjour Tristesse

my man
I once saw a post that said something like 'If you're a gay man and you don't date trans men / a gay woman and you don't date trans women you're transphobic and gross.' So it's definitely possible, somewhere.
contemporary french literature is pretty shit desu. I would recommend Nabe but it's only in french and his book are expensive because he published it himself.
Pretty strange that /lit/ didn't speak that much about him since he is one of the greatest french writer. He is a god tier phamplétiste and really provocativ. And he support Daesh

here the show that make him "famous"

Va falloir arrêter les conneries.
Just a dull provocateur, a poor-man's Rebatet, copying every single pamphlétaire he knows from Bloy to Céline, but without the substance they had.
I admit that he's cultured, but he has no personnality, he's lost in his persona.
>he support daesh
dat continental support of atrocity meme

>implying foucault wasn't being pretentious and wrong for supporting the iranian revolutionaries

>implying you aren't an edgelord

desu desu
>without the substance they had
I don't think so. I've read some of his book and all his texts, he is a better phanpletaire thant romancier.

>he has no personnality
not really an argument, i don't know what to respond

>he's lost in his persona.
C'est un vrai bourgeois avec tout ce qu'il ya d’énervant que cela implique, c'est vrai

i really think he his serious and not trying to be edgy. He is very educated and his mind is articulate.
It *edgy* daesh is committing war crimes and human rights violations. they sell children into sex slavery. they slaughter people barbarically. there is no defense of them that is not by definition edgy. i know you are french, so i understand if you can't say everything in english and i apologize for not knowing your language; but fuck dude you can't seriously defend such an idiot. Being educated and articulate does not mean you are correct.
>he didn't like I Stand Alone
>he didn't like Enter The Void

Destroy yourself.
