Georges Simenon

Interview in French. I can just puzzle my way through.

Simenon showed us that crime is banal. At the same time he showed the fascinating life of the everyday person in France. Mystery writers do that all the time.

I wish that speculative fiction-- fantasy/sci fi-- did it more. It seems many science fiction/fanatasy stories I read bejewel the fantastic. Gilding the lily?
