About Georges Simenon
Georges Simenon (1903-1989) began work as a reporter for a local newspaper at the age of sixteen, and at nineteen he moved to Paris to embark on a career as a novelist. He went on to write seventy-five Maigret novels and twenty-eight Maigret short stories.
Maigret ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals. ("People") [Simenon was] a writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal. (P. D. James)
