    In the comments following Steve Lewis’s review of Georges Simenon’s Inspector Maigret novel, The Bar on the Seine, he asked about my favorite non-Maigret novels.I see from my notes that I spent most of reading Simenon’s psychological crime novels. I read most of the hundred or so novels and even thought of writing an article for Mystery*File about my experience. The Maigret Machine By DEIRDRE BAIR. A life of Georges Simenon, whose prodigious output was matched only by his prodigious appetites. He is the ideal biographer for the nasty, prickly, opportunistic and misogynistic Simenon, and his book is a model of how to write honestly, objectively and dispassionately about such a man. First, Simenon.

    Georges Joseph Christian Simenon (French: ; 13 February – 4 September ) was a Belgian writer. A prolific author who published nearly novels and numerous short works, Simenon is best known as the creator of the fictional detective Jules : Georges Simenon, 13 February , Liège, Belgium. In what is probably Simenon’s most poignant book, “Maigret’s Memoirs” (), our hero remembers a time when he was an apprentice policeman, on a bike. A friend invites him to a party Author: Joan Acocella.
