Sample text

In several novels, she refers to this foreign language she has had to learn in order to understand him. By using the language of the street, Malet invites the reader to become part of the urban landscape and join the ambiance of 1954. In the same way that he renders the American hardboiled tradition culturally accessible to French readers in his use of familiar setting, Malet infuses his text with the language of his era. For his French readers not familiar with Burma’s gangsterisms or with the shady milieu in which he operates, Malet provides a glimpse of local exoticism, proving that a detective novel does not have to be set in a foreign country to attract readers.

Enfin, plus ou moins. Et dans un autre domaine évidemment” (Enquêtes, 1: 742). Without the last sentence, reminding us that it is Burma the detective who is speaking, the voice could almost be that of Malet himself, frustrated by his relative anonymity compared to the fame of his own creation or of established writers such as Simenon and Breton. He wants to make sure that he is also remembered. But in the same novel, he takes a swipe at writers who think themselves too important: “La vie est certainement plus compliquée et fertile en péripéties que tout ce que vous pouvez accumuler dans vos livres, disje.

While this omission gives his collective work a more timeless quality than that of Malet, he refuses to acknowledge his readership’s reality. Malet’s readers had the satisfaction of seeing those who had profited during the occupation come to a violent and painful end. Malet discusses the changing face of Paris, both good and bad, echoing the sentiments of the readers whose neighborhoods were torn down to build skyscrapers. In both Micmac moche au Boul’ Mich’ and Les eaux troubles de Javel, Burma reflects the attitude of many French made uncomfortable by the influx of immigrants from former colonies, and he uses slang to express his distaste.
