His first works show the influence of the Surrealists.
He was the owner of a profitable advertising firm, but sold it in order to devote his time to writing plays. Encouraged by Charles Dullin, he wrote in a wide range of styles and enjoyed great success from the mid-1930s. His later work is usually grouped with that of the Existentialists.
He was a member of the Académie Goncourt, and a library in his home town is named after him.
He died 23 November 1989.
