Jed Martin is an artist. The novel recounts his entire life, with particular emphasis on his 30s and 40s, his relationship with a Russian woman named Olga, his friendship with the writer Michel Houellebecq and his feelings about his father. Martin and Houellebecq meet because Houellebecq gets asked to write the catalog for Martin's biggest exhibit. The men develop a strange friendship, which is cut short when Houellebecq is savagely murdered.
