Monsieur Monde Vanishes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Monsieur Monde Vanishes free pdf Monsieur Monde is a successful middle-aged businessman in Paris. One morning he walks out on his life, leaving his wife asleep in bed, leaving everything. Not long after, he surfaces on the Riviera, keeping company with drunks, whores and pimps, with thieves and their marks. A whole new world, where he feels surprisingly at home--at least for a while.
Georges Simenon knew how obsession, buried for years, can come to life, and about the wreckage it leaves behind. He had a remarkable understanding of how bizarrely unaccountable people can be. And he had an almost uncanny ability to capture the look and feel of a given place and time. "Monsieur Monde Vanishes" is a subtle and profoundly disturbing triumph by the most popular of the twentieth century's great writers.

About Georges Simenon

Georges Simenon (1903-1989) was born in Liege, Belgium. He went to work as a reporter at the age of fifteen and in 1923 moved to Paris, where under various pseudonyms he became a highly successful and prolific author of pulp fiction while leading a dazzling social life. In the early 1930s, Simenon emerged as a writer under his own name, gaining renown for his detective stories featuring Inspector Maigret. He also began to write his psychological novels, or "romans durs"--books in which he displays a sympathetic awareness of the emotional and spiritual pain underlying the routines of daily life. Having written nearly two hundred books under his own name and become the best-selling author in the world, Simenon retired as a novelist in 1973, devoting himself instead to dictating several volumes of memoirs. Larry McMurtry lives in Archer City, Texas. His novels include "The Last Picture Show," "Terms of Endearment," "Lonesome Dove" (winner of the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction), "Folly and Glory "and "Rhino Ranch." His nonfiction works include a biography of Crazy Horse, "Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen," "Paradise," "Sacagawea's Nickname: Essays on the American West" and, most recently, "Custer."
