Reviews

Praise for Georges Simenon "One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories." --The Guardian "These Maigret books are as timeless as Paris itself." --The Washington Post "Maigret ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals." --People "I love reading Simenon. He makes me think of Chekhov." --William Faulkner "The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature." --Andr Gide "A supreme writer . . . Unforgettable vividness." --The Independent (London) "Superb . . . The most addictive of writers . . . A unique teller of tales." --The Observer (London) "Compelling, remorseless, brilliant." --John Gray "A truly wonderful writer . . . Marvelously readable--lucid, simple, absolutely in tune with the world he creates." --Muriel Spark "A novelist who entered his fictional world as if he were a part of it." --Peter Ackroyd "Extraordinary masterpieces of the twentieth century." --John Banville
