Paris: Butte-auxCailles, 1982: 119-22. 48 From Surrealism to Less-Exquisite Cadavers It may not be accurate to say that Burma “cache” his knowledge, as he shares it with the reader whenever possible. The range of his “connaissances,” including that of literary figures such as Mallarmé as well as historical faits-divers, is both surprising and impressive, as it goes beyond the culture scolaire that most French citizens shared.
When Burma first meets St-Germain, he says, “J’ignorais que vous fussiez un auteur de best-sellers, mais il ne me semble pas que ma réputation soit parvenue jusqu’à vous. Je suis également célèbre, vous savez? 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.

In most cases, Malet’s slang-filled verbosity colors the novels’ titles, provoking the reader’s curiosity and reflecting the narrative’s location. Sometimes a place is evoked, other times a plot device or mood.
