Product Details

Praise

“These books…are not mysteries…They are hard, blunt, frequently punishing studies of human beings driven by circumstance and personality to the ends of their tethers, forcing them to extreme measures…They are acute, compact, remarkably varied, and as lapidary as great pop songs. — Luc Sante, Bookforum”

“As the New York Review of Books Classics series publishes Simenon after Simenon at a rate the novelist would envy, it’s tempting to read them all in a lump, as an extensive, though still partial, psychological portrait of the writer. — The Nation”

“Georges Simenon is not only a master of suspense, he knows also how to probe so deeply into the minds of his characters as to reveal with remarkable fidelity the more evasive of human motives. — Cleveland Press”

“Strong, terrible, splendid stuff here, by one of the world’s strangest, most notable talents.” — Houston Chronicle
