    '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

Georges Simenon was born in Liège, Belgium, in 1903.
