Cover of the U.S. paperback release of the novel.
Platform (French: Plateforme) is a 2001 novel by controversial French writer Michel Houellebecq (translated into English by Frank Wynne). It has received both great praise and great criticism, most notably for the novel's apparent condoning of sex tourism and anti-Muslim feelings. The author was charged for inciting racial and religious hatred after describing Islam as "stupid", but saw charges dismissed.
The story is the first-person narrative of a fictional character named Michel Renault.
