"Simenon's romans durs are extraordinary: tough, bleak, offhandedly violent, suffused with guilt and bitterness, redolent of place ...utterly unsentimental, frightening in the pitilessness of their gaze, yet wonderfully entertaining." - John Banville An actor, recently divorced, at loose ends in New York; a woman, no less lonely, perhaps even more desperate than the man: they meet by chance in an all-night diner and are drawn to each other on the spot.

Roaming the city streets, hitting its late-night dives, dropping another coin into yet another jukebox, these two lost souls struggle to understand what it is that has brought them, almost in spite of themselves, together.

They are driven-from moment to moment, from bedroom to bedroom-to improvise the most unexpected of love stories, a tale of suspense where risk alone offers salvation.

Georges Simenon was the most popular and prolific of the twentieth century's great novelists.

Three Bedrooms in Manhattan-closely based on the story of his own meeting with his second wife-is his most passionate and revealing work.
