Text in English, translated from the French by Robert Baldick. "In 1941, told by a doctor that he had less than two years to live, Georges Simenon began writing the story of his family and his childhood in the form of a letter to his two-year-old son. André Gide asked to see the manuscript after about a hundred pages had been written, and urged the author to recase his work as a novel, which Simenon did. The result was 'Pedigree,' an account of the life of Roger Mamelin from his birth in Liége in 1903 to the end of the First World War." - from dust-jacket blurb.
