Michel Houellebecq Quotes: When He Was Six Victor Had Made A Card

When He Was Six, Victor Had Made A Card For His Father's Birthday. On Heavy Drawing Paper, He Had Written In Big, Multicolored Letters: I Love You Dad. Now All That Was Past, Over And Done With. Bruno Knew That Things Would Only Get Worse, That They Would Move From Mutual Indifference To Loathing. In A Couple Of Years His Son Would Try To Go Out With Girls His Own Age; The Same Fifteen-year-old Girls That Bruno Lusted After. They Would Come To Be Rivals-which Was The Natural Relationship Between Men. They Would Be Like Animals Fighting In A Cage; And The Cage Was Time.
