Product Details


“Attention should be paid to the New York Review of Books’ continuing reissues of Georges Simenon. Simenon was legendary both for his literary skill–four or five books every year for 40 years–and his sexual capacity, at least to hear him tell it. What we can speak of with some certainty are the novels, which are tough, rigorously unsentimental and full of rage, duplicity and, occasionally, justice. Simenon’s tone and dispassionate examination of humanity was echoed by Patricia Highsmith, who dispensed with the justice. So far, the Review has published Tropic Moon, The Man Who Watched Trains Go By, Red Lights, Dirty Snow and Three Bedrooms in ManhattanThe Strangers in the House comes out in November. Try one, and you’ll want to read more.”  — The Palm Beach Post 

“These three roman durs, and the ones that will follow them, including the insouciantly gruesome The Man Who Watched the Trains Go By, another tale of a husband on the run, andTropic Moon, a frightening study of lust and violence in the Belgian Congo, are superb and polished works of art masquerading as pulp fiction.” — John Banville, The New Republic

“A sleek, feverish read, perfect for a summer afternoon indoors, all the windows open wide and the fans on high.” —Open Letters Monthly
