Although in most of his books there’s a sense of Simenon milking the nostalgia of his foreign audience who are in love with the exoticism or Frenchness of his writing (despite the fact that he is Belgian or at least often described as Belgian-French), there’s a wonderful and genuine playful quality to his work which has not only stood the test of time (his prolific output stopped in the 1970s) but is also international in outlook. He is hugely popular in the French-speaking world but also has a global following. In a recent interview with the London Review of Books, novelist and Maigret fan John Lanchester recalled Simenon’s own favourite boast: that he was so prodigious a writer that he had no idea how many books he had authored. That’s impressive.
