Description
Warren Adler is the acclaimed author of 25 novels, published in 30 languages. Two of his books, "The War of the Roses" and "Random Hearts" were made into major motion pictures. He lives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and New York City. 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. "Tight, unique, intimate fascinating and unusual." - West Coast Review of Books "A clever look at the breakup of a marriage frightening and revealing." - Washington Star "A very, very funny novel." - Pat O'Haire, New York Daily News "This book is a dazzler, the wildest, most outrageous, most macabre book we've read in years." - Richard Zanuck and David Brown, Film Producers
