Link of the Day

What Georges Simenon was really like.

And I absolutely agree with the article: Maigret is literature. I’m curious to see these new Penguin translations. We had some pretty great Russian ones but I’ve never read him in English. It’s definitely the kind of literature that’s all about the translation.

  1. “Maigret is literature”

    I agree, unfortunately only some of the books have been translated into Polish so I’ve only been able to read about a half dozen or so (from very different periods in time). I’ve read one I found in English as well.

    The link helps put into words why I like the books so much… .
