Description: An international phenomenon, "The Elementary Particles" is a furiously important novel that tells the story of two deeply disturbed half brothers, Bruno and Michel. Both men were born to a bohemian mother (they had different fathers) at the height of the sixties. They endured separate childhoods and developed distinct identities shaped by parental neglect and hippie hedonism. Bruno, a failure to his own family and literary calling, is haunted by sexual obsession and madness. Michel, an asexual molecular biologist, expresses his disgust with society by engineering one that frees mankind from its uncontrollable, destructive urges. "The Elementary Particles" is a novel of big, domineering themes. It plumbs the opaque depths of anomie and despair but is mysteriously moving and rich with mordant humor.
