One of the world's most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers around the world since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. In "The Bar on the Seine," Maigret must visit a prisoner he arrested and bear the news that his reprieve has been refused and he will be executed at dawn. But when the condemned man tells Maigret a story, his investigations lead him to the Guinguette a Deux Sous, a bar by the River Seine, and into the seamy underside of bourgeois Parisian life.

About the author

Biography of Simenon, Georges

The prolific Belgian-born writer Georges Simenon produced hundreds of fictional works under his own name and 17 pseudonyms, in addition to more than 70 books about Inspector Maigret, long "the favorite sleuth of highbrow detective-story readers" (SR). More than 50 "Simenons" have been made into films. In addition to his mystery stories, he wrote what he called "hard" books, the serious psychological novels numbering well over 100. The autobiographical Pedigree, set in his native town of Liege, is perhaps his finest work.

The publication of Simenon's intimate memoirs also attracted considerable attention. Simenon himself once said that he would never write a "great novel". Yet Gide called him "a great novelist, perhaps the greatest and truest novelist we have in French literature today", and Thornton Wilder (see Vol. 1) found that Simenon's narrative gift extends "to the tips of his fingers". The following are some of Simenon's novels, exclusive of the Maigret detective stories, that are in print.
