'Compelling, remorseless, brilliant' John Gray It wasn't a traditional painter's smock that Madam Jonker was wearing. It was more a Dominican's monk's habit, the fabric as thick and soft as a bathrobe...She was holding a palette in her left hand, a brush in her right, and her black eyes lighted on Maigret with curiosity. During an undercover case Inspector Lognon is shot in a room he was sharing with a beautiful woman who has since disappeared. Inspector Maigret retraces Lognon's secretive last few days and is drawn into the darker side of the art world. Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret and the Apparition. 'His artistry is supreme' John Banville 'One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories' Guardian

The most comprehensive account of Georges Simenon's life and work in either English or French--from his youth and adolescence in Belgium, through his spirited beginnings as a writer of pulp fiction in the Paris of the 20s, his invention of Maigret in 1930, his turn to straight fiction in the 30s, and from the 40s on, his prolific output of detective and straight fiction.His obsession with women and his major friendships (Jean Renoir, Charlie Chaplin, Thornton Wilder, and others) are detailed. Also, critical evaluations of his fiction (including the largely ignored pulp fiction), Simenon's relationship to popular traditions, literature, detective fiction, high literature and the critics are offered. The photographs are rare and revealing (e.g., with Josephine Baker, cutting up in a bistro.)

Georges Simenon is the creator of the unforgettable character Inspector Maigret, the Parisian police detective who was the central figure in more than a hundred of Simenon's novels, as well as in countless movies and television adaptations. In fact, Simenon is without doubt the most widely published French writer of the twentieth century, and the literary merits of his work have been often obscured by the sheer size of his output: 190 potboilers signed with 17 pseudonyms, 358 novels and short stories signed Simenon, 25 autobiographical works, 30 series of articles published in the French press before and immediately after World War II, and a ballet scenario. Becker devotes serious critical consideration to Simenon's "roman durs," the "hard (problem) novels" that are characterized by an extraordinary blend of narrative skill and psychological insight, and discusses how he effected a transformation of the detective novel genre. A thoughtful, knowledgeable, and highly readable book, Georges Simenon Revisited will be a valuable resource for both scholars and students.
