Summary

Martine, una donna giovane e pallida dal cappellino ridicolmente sformato, entra per caso nella vita di un medico, un uomo dall'esistenza grigia che non conosce amore.

Sullo sfondo di stazioni gocciolanti di pioggia, bar e piccoli alberghi di provincia prende corpo una storia di passione e di morte, carica d'esaltazione e angoscia. Uno dei capolavori di Georges Simenon.

A work of probing life-and-death questions

A departure from Simenon's usual reportage style I very much enjoyed. A haunting tale of obsession and murder, a middle-age crisis: "How did I end up here?" to the point where the worry becomes so persistent that he commits a crime to assert his free will. Simenon is a master of making his madmen eerily relatable, at least for a good chunk of the story, till he pulls the switch and you realise they were totally psycho the whole time and you're left questioning your own silly dark-hearted self.

Una lettera troppo lunga.

I'm a fan of Simenon, but this one drags on. The endless rambling of a crazy person was probably his intention, but it risks becoming boring. Reminded me a little of The Kreutzer Sonata. Narration is very good if you're a student of the language.
