Read a review of Beigbeder’s novel Windows on the World
“The position occupied by Beigbeder in France is that of the pop-intellectual, the cultural commentator novelist. Windows on the World is, as you would expect from Beigbeder if you are familiar with him, part novel, part cultural commentary, part manifesto and part cathartic purge.”
