My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know? Houellebecq and Huysmans have much in common, beginning with their ability to infuriate readers. There is more to these two writers than mere provocations, however. They each have a twisted outlook on the sacred. Huysmans was a skeptic who wanted to believe.
He is basically attempting a form of sensual monasticism, combining the terrestrial with the ethereal in the most lurid ways conceivable. Throughout his career as a professor, the only interest he takes in his students is the possibility of sleeping with those who are attractive and female.
His pattern is to break up with a woman once he has slept with her, out of weariness, and then keep having attachment-free sex. As he grows older, he becomes depressed by all his pseudo-girlfriends—except for one, Myriam, a twenty-two-year old Louise Brooks-alike who, on his forty-fourth birthday, gives him such physical pleasure that he nearly passes out.

They talk on the phone a few times and then she dumps him via e-mail. Des Esseintes has a more complicated dynamic with members of the opposite sex. He seems to be impotent, but he still has needs. Huysmans himself claimed to possess no qualities that could possibly attract a woman; his closest love was a seamstress named Anna Meunier, with whom he had an on-again, off-again thing until she was hospitalized in a mental asylum, where she died two years later. When Des Esseintes hooks up with a ventriloquist, one of their early date nights consists of him lying next to her on his divan while she projects her voice into a black-marble sphinx and a statuette of a chimera.
At one of his more suicidal moments, he has a threesome with two escorts in their early twenties. To the accompaniment of dulcet whale songs, he halfheartedly sodomizes them, feeling, at first, no joy at all. Houellebecq travelled there when writing the book; he was at first given a bed in a room set up for the homeless as the priests mistook him for a vagrant. Des Esseintes tries to ignore his catarrh and anemia and paroxysmal attacks by carpeting his floor with blue fox skins and wearing a necktie made of parma violets.
