One of my favourite authors, Michel Houellebecq, wrote an incredible novel called The Possibility of an Island, a postmodern nihilistic science fiction epic. He then made a film of it, which I still haven’t seen. Then Iggy Pop made an album of jazz influenced songs with lyrics based on themes from the book called Preliminaires. Finally, filmmaker and illustrator Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) provided the cover artwork for Iggy’s CD. That’s quite a collaboration.
