RARA-AVIS: Geroges Simenon

I don't think of Maigret as hardboiled, but I do think that Simenon's non-Maigret stories are noir.

Supposedly, he wrote only eight days a month but completed a novel in that time -- his books are much shorter than the average category novel of today.

Simenon, I belive, he is one of the most underrated detective and noir novelist, perhaps because he didn't write in English.

The only Maigret's I didn';t like were those that took place in the U.S.

Somewhere along the line, we should consider him for discussion on this list.
