Author Info
Georges Simenon
The son of an insurance salesman, Georges Simenon was born in Liege, Belgium and worked as a baker, bookstore clerk, and journalist before becoming an internationally best-selling writer. The author of over 200 novels, Simenon emigrated to Paris in 1923 and eventually earned his reputation as the creator of Inspector Maigret, the Paris policeman who first appeared in "The Strange Case of Peter the Lett" (1931). The Maigret series focuses on the psychological motivations of his characters and the many repercussions of their often psychotic, disturbed behavior. An avid traveler, Simenon published his autobiography, "When I Was Old" in 1970, claiming in it that he had slept with more than 20,000 women throughout his life. He eventually settled down in Lausanne, Switzerland in the late 1950s.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Restored to print for the first time in more than forty years, The President was hailed by the New York Times as a “tour de force”At 82, the former premier lives in alert and suspicious retirement—self exile—on the Normandy coast, writing his anxiously anticipated memoirs and receiving visits from statesman and biographers. In his library is the self-condemning, handwritten confession of the premier’s former attaché, Chalamont, hidden between the pages of a sumptuously produced work of privately printed pornography—a confession that the premier himself had dictated and forced Chalamont to sign. Now the long-thwarted Chalamont has been summoned to form a new coalition in the wake of the government’s collapse. The premier alone possesses the secret of Chalamont’s guilt, of his true character—and has publicly vowed: “He’ll never be Premier as long as I’m alive... Nor when I’m dead, either.” Inspired by French Premier Georges Clemenceau, The President is a masterpiece of psychological suspense and a probing account of the decline of power.
