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 two 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] "S'il fallait chercher un lien, on pourrait retenir la volonté de s'inscrire dans l'héritage balzacien." Less elogious, Jérôme Dupuis of L'Express described him as "a Houellebecq without humour, without sex, without aphorism, without melancholy".[3]
