A comic-book like rendering of the pilot and The Little Prince.
By Robin Guinin
When he depicted the novel's narrator crashing in the Sahara at the opening of the book, Saint-Exupéry was writing what he knew. While today he's largely remembered for The Little Prince, before World War II Saint-Exupéry was celebrated as an aristocratic aviator and writer who had flown mail routes in Africa and South America and even worked as a test pilot. During an attempt to break the record for the fastest trip between Paris and Saigon, Saint-Exupéry crashed his plane in the desert 125 miles outside of Cairo.
