Jules arrives from Austria in belle époque Paris, where he is befriended by Jim. Together they embark upon a riotously Bohemian life, full of gaiety, color and bustle. And then there is Kate, the enigmatic German girl with the mysterious smile.
Capricious, untamed and curiously innocent, Kate steals their hearts in turn, and so begins the moving and tender story of three people in love, with each other and with life. Francois Truffaut, whose film of the novel is one of cinema's greatest achievments, has called Jules et Jim "a perfect hymn to love."
Henri-Pierre Roché devoted his life to the arts, numbering Duchamp, Brancusi, Braque, Satie and Picasso amongst his closest friends. Jules et Jim, an autobiographical novel, was originally published in France in 1953 and was followed by Deux Anglaises et le Continent, which Truffaut also made into a film.
"A delightful account of people sharing and unsharing each other."?Times Literary Supplement

Henri-Pierre Roche was born in Paris on 28 May 1879. Part of the avant-garde scene in Paris at the turn of the twentieth century, he was friends with artists such as Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, and introduced Leo and Gertrude Stein to Picasso. Having been a journalist, art collector and dealer for most of his life, Roche only wrote his first novel, Jules et Jim, when he was in his seventies. Truffaut was so impressed by the book he made both it and Roche's second novel, Les deux anglaises et le continent (1956), into films. Roche died on 9 April 1959.
