Mona Lisa dons niqab for Hungarian version of Houellebecq novel
The Mona Lisa dons a face veil on the cover of the upcoming Hungarian edition of French author Michel Houellebecq's novel "Soumission", which imagines a France under Islamic rule.
Hungarian publisher Magveto hopes the veiling of the woman in Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece will bring attention to "Soumission" ("Behodolas" in Hungarian) before its release on April 22.
"It's an important book that deserves more readers than just fans of contemporary French literature or of Houellebecq," Magveto's director, Krisztian Nyary, told AFP Tuesday.
