Críticas:

"Deeply amusing... A book of supreme importance, this is not to be missed." --"Library Journal"
"Deadpan funny... A brilliantly astute work of social critique." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Archly sarcastic, cheerily pedantic, willfully brutal.... But what remained with me of this singular novel is a powerful sense of the Houllebecquian mood, which the critic Paul Berman once characterized as 'depressive lucidity, ' and which here consists of a heightened awareness of the impoverishment of everyday life and its landscape, along with a dammed-up pool of heartbreak." --Judith Shulevitz, "The New York Times Book Review
"
"A revelation for all who follow the controversial French novelist, whether they love him or loathe him.... Here he achieves a richness and resonance beyond his previous work ... a tender romance, a meditation of the function and value of art and a police procedural.... Very smart, very moving and occasionally very funny." --"Kirkus "(starred review)
"A trenchant, sharp-tongued social commentator.... What kept me reading is Houellebecq'a scratchy, uncomfortable mind, his catalogue of hatreds and aversions, and the flurries of inventiveness and invective they inspire." - Laura Kipnes, "Bookforum"
"Michel Houellebecq is the most interesting, provocative and important European novelist of my generation. Period. No one else comes close. He has written two or maybe three great books, and his latest, "The Map and the Territory," is one of them." -Bret Easton Ellis
Praise from the UK:
"Beautifully, accurately translated.... Accessible and highly enjoyable. If ever there was a novelist for our globally dysfunctional times it's Michel Houellebecq.... Long cast aside as the bad boy of books, [his] latest novel has seen him brought in from the cold, and embraced by the literary establishment for what he's always been - not much short of a genius." --"The Mirror "(4-star book of the week)

"A serious reflection on art, death, and contemporary society, "The Map and the Territory" is a tour de force....It is part crafty page-turner, part sociological inquiry, part satire, part mystery novel, part artist's biography. In its seamless collage of artful pastiche, the novel captures with perfect irony the tone and texture of twenty-first-century discourses, from Wikipedia articles to operating instructions, from tacky pop songs to pompous art reviews in "Le Monde." In the process, it offers original insights into the museumification of contemporary France, the eerie coincidence between art and death, an exegesis of socialist writer William Morris, and meditation on art as a practice, a produce, and a business." - Cecile Alduy, "The Los Angeles Review of Books "

Reseña del editor:

The most celebrated and controversial French novelist of our time delivers a riveting masterpiece about art and money, love and friendship, and fathers and sons.
Jed Martin is an artist. His first photographs feature Michelin road maps, and global success arrives with his series on professions: portraits of various personalities, including a writer named Houellebecq. Not long afterward, Jed helps a police inspector solve a heinous crime that leaves lasting marks on everyone involved. But after burying his father and growing old himself, Jed also discovers serenity, a deeply moving conclusion to a life of lovers, friends, and family, and filled with hopes, losses, and dreams.
