Born in 1900 of impoverished aristocracy, he swiftly developed a mania for aviation, despite his chaotic mind and total technological incompetence. He flew reconnaissance missions in the War and wrote some strange and wonderful books, including the classic children's story "The Little Prince", between theatrically executed airplane crashed. He died in the air in 1944, and his brief life instantly acquired mythical status. 'Every facet of Saint-Exupery's short and dramatic life is covered in this fascinating biography. This is Stacy Schiff's first book, but she writes with all the skill, assurance and mastery of an old literary hand. If there was such a thing as a prize for a first biography, I would nominate this book' - Frank McLynn, "Sunday Telegraph".Hide synopsis

To his own generation Saint-Exupery was a contradiction in terms: an aristocrat who made his name in the cockpit of an aeroplane, a pilot who gloried in his literary triumphs, a man of science who believed most of all in instinct and who performed some of his most memorable feats with a deck of cards. The author of many of the classics of aviation, he also wrote The Little Prince, the most translated volume in the French language and one which has attained cult status. Absent minded, Saint-Exupery had frequent aeroplane crashes which Houdini like he managed to survive until his last flight 50 years ago, from which he never returned.
