      I felt such relief at the end of this article. It felt like penance!

      Wow, I am nothing near a literature buff and had never even heard of Simenon before but this was a great read. What an interesting character!

      I was reading Antifragile by N N Taleb and came to know about Georges Simenon.

      Indeed, Georges Simenon, one of the most prolific writers of the twentieth century, only wrote sixty days a year, with three hundred days spent "doing nothing" He published more than two hundred novels.
