Simenon Interview

Here's an interesting interview with Georges Simenon from the Paris Review where he describes the origins of his style, his working method, and the differences between his commercial works and his more stark "romans durs."  I discovered Simenon through one of his "hard novels," Dirty Snow (also available translated as "The Stain on the Snow"), but have read his more commercial work since and can safely say I haven't read anything that didn't impress me, with Dirty Snow in particular being profoundly disturbing.  Enjoy.
