Bestselling Book The War of the Roses Celebrates 25th Film Anniversary

Purchase eBook for $1.99, Limited Time Only

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 09, 2014) - The iconic American novel The War of the Roses by Warren Adler is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Hollywood film debut this December. In honor of this milestone, readers can purchase the eBook for $1.99 through Oct. 15. 

"This book is a dazzler, the wildest, most outrageous, most macabre comedic book we've read in years." - Richard Zanuck and David Brown, producers, Warner Bros.

"The War of the Roses is a brave comedy... it snarls in your memory long after it's over." - Newsweek

A box office and critical hit in 1989, The War of the Roses -- starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito -- garnered multiple award wins and nominations internationally, including the Golden Globe, BAFTA and Berlinale.

The relatable and ultimately realistic tale of divorce is about a husband and wife once seen as the perfect couple plummeting into domestic warfare over their house, money, and rich antique collection. It illuminates the relationship-shattering materialism, contempt and selfishness of husband and wife.

"I am astonished at the staying power The War of the Roses, which takes a rather dark view on the end of a marriage, and what the process itself does to people," said Adler.

The War of the Roses eBook is $1.99 at Amazon, Nook, Apple, and Kobo.
