Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In "The Friend of Madame Maigret," Simenon's economic prose brilliantly portrays the Marais quarter of Paris and those who haunt its narrow streets as Inspector Maigret attempts to prove that a murder has actually been committed without a corpse anywhere to be found. As the investigation becomes increasingly complex, seemingly unconnected characters are drawn into the case, and Maigret begins to wonder if his wife's earlier strange encounter with a woman and her baby may be the missing link.

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.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2007-06-15)

Released in 1960 and 1932, respectively, these are two more outings in Simenon's delightful--and madly addictive-Inspector Maigret mystery series. Though written decades apart, the books each feature the inspector's wife in a significant role. Great fun.
