More About Georges Simenon

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Georges Simenon (1903 1989) was born in Liege, Belgium. He went to work as a reporter at the age of fifteen and in 1923 moved to Paris, where under various pseudonyms he became a highly successful and prolific author of pulp fiction while leading a dazzling social life. In the early 1930s, Simenon emerged as a writer under his own name, gaining renown for his detective stories featuring Inspector Maigret. He also began to write his psychological novels books in which he displays a sympathetic awareness of the emotional and spiritual pain underlying the routines of daily life. Having written nearly two hundred books under his own name and become the best-selling author in the world, Simenon retired as a novelist in 1973, devoting himself instead to dictating several volumes of memoirs.
Paul Theroux was born in Medford, Massachusetts, and published his first novel, Waldo, in 1967. He has published novels and travel books, his latest being The Elephanta Suite. He divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian Islands, where he is a professional beekeeper."

Reviews - What do customers think about Maigret Et Le Clochard?

First experience with Simenon  Apr 13, 2001
I have to confess, I read this book because it was an assignment in my French IV class. Being the open-minded, enthusiastic reader I am, I was excited to read my first French detective novel. (Keep in mind, this is sort of a beginner level French book.) I have now finished the book and can honestly say I think it deserves 3.5 stars out of 5. It was intersting. And it was short. It started out being pretty detailed but then Maigret, the detective and main character, decided he had done enough investigating and went after the main guy he'd been talking to the whole book. The ending was the thing that got me. When I read a detective story, I assume there will be an interesting ending that the rest of the book led up to. I found the ending to this book to be very abrupt and unsatisfying. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and I wouldn't mind picking up another of Simenon's 350 or so books.
