Product description

Review

Fierce, bleak and compellingly written . . . with pitiless landscapes of hopeless longing, random cruelty and galloping fate warmed only by the twilit lyricism of doomed desire. These are novels of eye-opening, spine-tingling control and intensity. (Boyd Tonkin The Independent)

One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories (Guardian)

Compelling . . . Simenon shows how close the deranged mind is to the ordinary mind' (Financial Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Georges Simenon was born at Liège in Belgium 1903. He published over 160 books and his work has been admired by almost all the leading French and English critics. His books have been translated into more than 20 languages and more than 40 have been filmed.
