'Simenon is one of the greatest living literary phenomena, an author with a huge output and a remarkably and consistently high standard of excellence.
He very naturally devotes much space both to the straight novels and to the detective stories involving the celebrated Maigret; but he also approaches Simenon from a biographical and psychological standpoint and delves deep into the attitude to life and his fellow-men, their faults and their tragedies, which emerges from his novels, Simenon in Court is a tour de force of literary criticism which poses many questions and answers them convincingly.'
