About Pedigree

Pedigree is a novel by Belgian author Georges Simenon. It was first published in 1948. Simenon described the work as "a book in which everything is true but nothing is accurate." It is a semi-autobiographical account of the author's childhood in Belgium, spanning from the early years of the century to the end of the first world war. An English translation by Robert Baldick was first published in the UK in 1962. This translation was reissued by New York Review Books Classics with an introduction by Luc Sante in 2010.
