Praise

“Dirty Snow is an astonishing work.” — John Banville, The New Republic

“Simenon perfected a psychology-driven alternative to the plot heavy intrigues of British and US crime writing.” — Bord Tonkin, The Independent

“For my part I know of no better way to pass the time on a plane from Nice to Athens or, say, from Rangoon to Singapore, than to read one of Simenon’s novels.” — Somerset Maugham

“God created you to write like he created my father to paint. That is why you both do it so well.” — Jean Renoir, letter to Simenon

“Georges Simenon is a recent discovery for me—not the Maigret books, but what Simenon called his “romans durs,” such as Dirty Snow and Three Bedrooms in Manhattan— and hard they are indeed. The latest of these New York Review Books reissues, Tropic Moon (translated from the French by Marc Romano) is a dark masterpiece set among French colonials in heart-of-darkness Gabon in the early 1930s. Cruel, erotic, frightening and superb.” — John Banville, The Los Angeles Times
