display_description This is the book that became one of the most famous movies about divorce ever produced. Oliver and Barbara Rose thought they had a perfect marriage, only to discover that their relationship was barely skin deep. Beginning with destroying each other’s most prized possessions, the relentless war they wage against each other eventually descends into brutality and then spirals uncontrollably into madness and chaos. The global impact of both the book and the movie, now considered classics, has brought the phrase "The War of the Roses" into the accepted jargon describing the terrible hatred and cruelty engendered in divorce proceedings.
