Georges Simenon – The Sailors’ Rendezvous

 

The Deadly Power of Mad Love

A tale of amour fou that turns into violence, the petite bourgeois temptations of a well-arranged marriage, a sensual and irresistible woman, the lives of fishermen and sailors: these are the main ingredients of a crime novel that does not judge and can be full of compassion. A small masterpiece, light and immediate in its human depth.
