Winner of the Prix de la Nouvelle Vague, Christiane Rochefort's first novel centers around a tumultuous relationship between a young girl and her older, depressed and alcoholic lover. Though relatively unknown to English-speaking audiences, Warrior's Rest was a bestseller in France, and it served as the source material for the 1962 Roger Vadim film of the same name starring Brigitte Bardot.
