Three Bedrooms in Manhattan Summary

Three Bedrooms in Manhattan by Georges Simenon

'One of his most erotic and emotionally charged stories' The Times

Two people who didn't know each other and who had come together by a miracle in the great city, and who now clung desperately to each other, as if already they felt a chilly solitude settling in.

A divorced actor and a lonely woman, both adrift in New York, meet by chance in an all-night diner. It is the start of something, though neither is sure what. As they move through neon-lit streets, bars, rented rooms and cheap motels, these two lost souls struggle to understand what it is that has brought them, in spite of themselves, inexorably together.

'Simenon casts his characteristic spell from the opening lines. There is an evanescent, hallucinatory, almost dreamlike quality throughout' Daily Telegraph

'Three Bedrooms in Manhattan is about how we resist love, how we get dragged into it, spat out, dragged back in against our will' Los Angeles Times

Three Bedrooms in Manhattan Reviews

One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories * Guardian *
A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness * Independent *
Intense and atmospheric . . . Simenon brilliantly and sparely recreates the New York of the time - the all-night diners, the sleazy bars, cheap hotels and threadbare apartments. -- Richard Hopton
