… is the title of Jean-Pierre Guéno’s latest book. After the enormous success of Paroles de Poilus, based on letters and diaries written by France’s First World War troops, Jean-Pierre Guéno has turned his attention to the life of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. For this extensively illustrated biography, Jean-Pierre Guéno worked closely with the families of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Consuelo de Saint-Exupéry, the Saint-Exupéry family heirs. The result is a work illustrated by over 450 documents: manuscripts, photos, letters; drawings, restaurant bills and a host of mementoes, all lovingly presented by artistic director Jérôme Pecnard.


Friends of the Little Prince should know that Jean-Pierre Guéno has not confined himself solely to the life of Saint-Exupéry. He has also made the acquaintance of the Little Prince, who takes his turn narrating the diary of the life of Antoine, writer, aviator and humanist.
