‘The newest Simenon’ page 21

I was curious who Simenon was so looked him up after reading on page 21 -‘ I’d been to a movie,come home, and gone to bed with a bourbon nightcap and the newest Simenon: so much my idea of comfort…’

Belgian author – the likeliest book being, in 1943, Inspector Cadaver. – a glimpse into Fred’s character – Simenon a prolific writer and gossip columnist 200 novels – seems like sensational, light reading – in trouble for collaborating with Germans in Paris in 1940s – although some say he was just an opportunist.
