Our "hiatus author" for 2011 is Georges Simenon, creator of the legendary sleuth Inspector Maigret. We encourage Just Desserts participants to read any book in the Inspector Maigret series (or watch an episode of one of the Maigret TV or movie adaptations), at some point in November or December 2011, then come back here and leave a comment about whatever you read or watched, as a response to this discussion topic.
As a bit of background, here are some links to Simenon and Maigret information:
- Georges Simenon entry on Wikipedia
- Simenon's Maigret -- a detailed site about the series, with tons of links
In all, there have been 75 novels and 28 short stories written by Simenon that feature Maigret, and the Lincoln City Libraries still have over 45 of these.
We look forward to seeing your comments here over the course of the next two months!
