THE INNOCENTS

A plaintive, gently insistent reconnaissance of the marriage of Celerin, a serene and trusting little jeweler, after the sudden fact of his wife Annette's death (run over by a car) to whom he had been as devoted as she had been to her soi-disant welfare work. Before the imperfect and not altogether complete truth is known, she will have died twice for him. One of Simenon's quick studies (more substantial than any he has done recently) of those big white lies in little grey lives.
