Bellanger in 2014

Aurélien Bellanger, born 20 April 1980 in Laval, Mayenne, is a French writer and actor. He debuted in 2010 with a monograph about Michel Houellebecq and has since published four novels. His second novel, L'Aménagement du territoire, received the 2014 Prix de Flore.[1] Due to his occupation with technology and modern life, his novels have been compared to the works of Houellebecq and Honoré de Balzac. In La Croix, Sabine Audrerie notes[2] "If we had to look for a link, we could retain the desire to be part of the Balzacie heritage." Less elogious, Jérôme Dupuis of L'Express described him as "a Houellebecq without humour, without sex, without aphorism, without melancholy".[3]
