Maigret in the Bookshop

The Crime at Black Dudley by Margery Allingham

"Most people's first books are their best anyways. It's the one they wanted most to write."- Josephine Tey

 "Writing is not a profession but a vocation of unhappiness. I don't think an artist can ever be happy." - Georges Simenon

 "I would like to carve my novel in a piece of wood. My characters—I would like to have them heavier, more three-dimensional ... My characters have a profession, have characteristics; you know their age, their family situation, and everything. But I try to make each one of those characters heavy, like a statue, and to be the brother of everybody in the world." - Georges Simenon
