DEAUVILLE

On August 15, 1931, Georges Simenon was invited to Deauville to sign his works. He comes aboard his yacht, the Ostrogoth and moored in the Yachts basin. During this immersion in Deauville, he stocked up on images and sensations. He will draw from it a new policewoman: "La Fleuriste de Deauville" and will evoke this stay in 1977 in one of his collections of memories: "Point-Virgule".
