What about your style? You have a habit of making brutal, often amusing
juxtapositions, as in “On the day of my son’s suicide, I made a tomato omelet.”

HOUELLEBECQ

That’s not really what I call style. It’s just the way I perceive the world. I have a kind of nervousness that leads to rapid juxtapositions. It’s not so different from punk rock. You scream but you modulate a little. There have been graduate studies of my style.

From Wikipedia:

Michel Houellebecq (French: [miʃɛl wɛlbɛk]; born Michel Thomas on 26 February 1956), is a controversial and award-winning French author, filmmaker and poet. Having written poetry and a biography of the horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, he published his first novel, Extension du domaine de la lutte, in 1994. Les Particules élémentaires followed in 1998, and Plateforme in 2001. After a publicity tour for this book led to his being taken to court for inciting racial hatred, he moved to Ireland to write for several yearsand now resides in Spain.

    Salon goes for the a great deal of admirable style. Delicately wipe
    it using a damp material, is not going to brush it fiercely that has
    a brush, don’t melt away these comfortable shoes with boiled water, and do not use washing detergent and alkaline cleaning fluid to completely clean it on the same time.
