Críticas:

"This captivating biography deftly separates the man from the myth, revealing an awkward, petulant idealist, an elitist who advocated oligarchy, a pilot known for his mishaps and absentmindedness, and an unhappily married adventurer whose abusive wife eventually reached an uneasy accommodation with his mistress. " - Publishers Weekly

Reseña del editor:

From a master biographer, the life story of the daring French aviator who became one of the twentieth century’s most beloved authors
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry disappeared at age forty-four during a reconnaissance flight over southern France. At the time he was best known for a career of daring flights over the Sahara, the Pyrenees, and Patagonia and for his contributions to the science of aviation. But the solitary hours he spent above the earth in open cockpit airplanes gave birth to a more famous legacy, a series of enchanting, autobiographical novels and the classic story The Little Prince, still the most translated book in the French language.
An impoverished aristocrat from one of France’s oldest families, Saint-Exupéry moved at age twenty-seven to the western Sahara Desert, to live alone in a plank shack and manage the way station for the Aéropostale, the French mail service. His careers as a novelist and an aviator were born here, and his life once he returned to Europe was defined—with brilliant and catastrophic results—by the sense of isolated fascination and curiosity he developed in the desert.
In this definitive biography, Pulitzer Prize winner Stacy Schiff reveals an intrepid and unconventional life that rivals the best adventure stories.

“A remarkable biography; indeed, it is impossible to imagine the job better done. It is balanced, perceptive, thoroughly researched, and exceptionally well-written.” —The New Yorker

Descripción Owl Books (NY), United States, 2006. Paperback. Condición: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Stacy Schiff has brought Saint-Exupery wonderfully to life in this definitive biography of the enchanting and complex man. Drawing on dramatic new material, she provides full accounts of his many harrowing plunges to earth, the most serious of which led to the publication of Wind, Sand and Stars, and of his unhappy yet fertile years in New York, where he wrote both Flight to Arras and The Little Prince. She includes entirely fresh information on his career as an Allied war pilot as well as a heartbreaking portrait of him as a Frenchman without a country - and without any politics - in 1940. Deftly, she explores his tortured relationships with his wife and with other women, drawing on many unpublished letters and on her extensive interviews with his friends and his lovers. And she sets him superbly in the context of an era increasingly at odds with his courtly personality and romantic vision. Nº de ref. del artículo: APC9780805079135
