Maigret #35: Maigret's Memoirs
In this make-believe memoir, Maigret recounts a meeting with the author himself. The account starts with the arrival of Georges Sim at the Paris Police Judiciaire to soak up atmosphere for his crime novels by dogging the footsteps of Inspector Maigret. The detective is irritated by the audacious young writer who names a character after him and argues that he oversimplifies, in his fiction, the intricate duties of the police investigating a case. Here, Maigret sets the record straight, telling readers how he's different from the invention, and about his courtship and marriage to his beloved Louise.
