I'm a fan of the Maigret novels. I have a collection of them and read two or more a year, and tho they are quite short, they are usually satisfying in an easy going kind of way. Having read Simenon's massive "Intimate Memoirs" and in anticipation of reading the biography by Pierre Assouline, which got good reviews here, I found this one interesting, but since it was completed while Simenon was still living, a bit dated and obviously incomplete. I enjoyed reading about the almost Gatsby-like part ...more

Some good details and synthesis of Simenon's varying memoirs and accounts. Written before Simenon's death. Periodically, the author has some weird interjections, as if blurting out some off the cuff judgements and pronunciations. Very odd. Scan it for interesting information, but don't expect useful analysis or anything like graceful prose.

This biography is written almost like a substantial, readable report. As a work of writing, it is not very commendable. However, it contains a lot of information about Simenon, which is what I was looking for.
