About Henri-Pierre Roché

  • Henri-Pierre Roché (28 May 1879 – 9 April 1959) was a French author who was deeply involved with the artistic avant-garde in Paris and the Dada movement. Late in life, Roché published two novels: his first was Jules et Jim (1953), a semi-autobiographical work published when he was 74.
  • His second novel, Les deux anglaises et le continent (Two English Girls, 1956), was also inspired by his life.
  • Both were adapted as films by the director François Truffaut, in 1962 and 1971 respectively.
  • The popularity of the film Jules et Jim brought renewed attention to Roché's novels and life.
