Georges Simenon (1903–1989) was a phenomenally successful author of crime fiction. His 75 Maigret novels and 28 Maigret short stories were published between 1931 and 1972 to great international acclaim (he is the only non-anglophone crime writer to have achieved such renown). His Maigret stories are regarded by many as having established a new direction in crime fiction, emphasizing social and psychological portraiture rather than focussing on a puzzle to be solved or on “action.” This book examines the importance of social class and social change in the Maigret stories, giving a particular emphasis to the early formative novels and the development of plot, characterization and setting. The author seeks to establish the extent to which Simenon’s portrait of French society is historically accurate and the nature of the influence of the author’s own class position and ideology on his fiction.

 Georges Simenon’s 75 novels and 28 short stories that feature Chief Inspector Jules Maigret provide us with a great deal of information about the French police detective—but only in small, episodic doses. As readers become acquainted with Maigret one detail at a time, he slowly takes on a flesh-and-bone realism—not merely a character in a story, but someone we would like to meet in real life. This book presents all the canonical facts and details about the detective and his world in one place, presented with tabulations and analyses that enable a better understanding of the works and of Maigret himself.

Ensayo en el que dialogan de forma dinámica el marxismo y la sociología crítica, la historia y la lingüística, así como la filosofía analítica y la teoría mimética; con el objetivo de comprender las figuras del enigma, el complot y la investigación en la representación de la realidad desde finales del siglo XIX a inicios del XX. Éstas han sido desarrolladas en las novelas policiacas y de espionaje -la primera bajo la forma de la investigación, la segunda por medio del complot-, de ahí que la reflexión de Boltanski sobre la construcción y problematización de la realidad, sea mediante una minuciosa y brillante revisión de cómo se piensa la realidad en las principales obras de ambos géneros.

Inspector Lognon - a plain-clothes detective with a reputation for misfortune - is shot in the street with the word 'ghost' on his lips. It soon emerges that he spent the night in the nearby apartment of a beautiful young woman, who has since vanished. While the injured man fights for his life in hospital, Chief Superintendent Maigret discovers that the hapless Inspector may finally have been on to something big. And when he encounters suave art dealer Norris Jonker and his glamorous wife Mirella, Maigret begins to wonder if their strange lifestyle is the reason for Lognon's presence on the Avenue Junot. In Maigret and the Ghost, Simenon's tenacious detective is perplexed by a constant stream of conflicting evidence as he explores the underground world of art collecting.

Each review provides a kind of trailer for the work and is followed by an excerpt as a taster. It introduces big names of French literature such as Sartre, Camus, Colette and Duras, and a collection of less familiar writers, such as Driss Chraibi and Madeline Bourdouxhe. It includes a database of French fiction translated in the UK since 1950, with original titles and current prices. This is the third in a series of accessible and illustrated guides to world fiction available in English translation, aimed at journalists, academics, teachers and the ordinary reader. The reviews let potential readers have a idea as to whether a work might suit them.
