After 500 novels and 10,000 women...

Here's an interesting article on pipe-smoking novelist Georges Simenon from a 1980 issue of People Magazine: Georges Simenon has earned his retirement.

Several pictures of Simenon with pipe, although they are not very good quality.

I wish I had a table just to keep my collection so orderly. The article states that he mostly had Dunhills. My favorite picture is this one with Susan Hayward.

Thanks to David Codrea for the email tip.


  1. Okay, I'm just trying to reconcile "not very good quality" with "he mostly had Dunhills".

  2. I'm sorry. I worded that poorly. I meant to say the pictures were not very good quality. I was not referring to the pipes.
