Georges Simenon, author of the Maigret stories, was the best-selling writer in the world, but he was a man haunted by sexual jealousy and phantoms which he could only exorcise in his writing. Patrick Marnham sets out to explain the connection between Simenon's impoverished childhood, his lifelong fascinationwith crime and the tormented fiction he wrote. He has talked to those who shared Simenon's life and has drawn on letters, papers and writing to produce this shrewd, witty and captivating biography.
