SIMENON SIMENON. LE HEROS MEDECIN DANS SON RECUEIL "LE PETIT DOCTEUR"
On apprend comment Simenon transforme un médecin de campagne ordinaire en un détective privé amateur
SIMENON SIMENON. L'EROICO MEDICO NELLA RACCOLTO "IL PICCOLO DOTTORE"
Come fa Simenon a trasformare un medico di campagna in un detective privato dilettante?
As one might expect of the first story in the collection of 13, The Doctor’s Hunch (Le Flair du Petit Docteur) introduces the Little Doctor, outlining his personality, style, and technique while explaining how he gets hooked into solving crimes. One learns for example that his affectionate nickname (his real name is Jean Dollent) stems from his small stature, kindliness, lack of frills, and tiny car. He lives, practices, and sleuths in Marsilly on the Atlantic coast, where Simenon also lived for 4 years during the 30s.
