Synopsis: The acclaimed aviator and adventurer wrote Letter to a Hostage for his friend Léon Werth while waiting in Portugal for a passage to the United States, having just escaped the terrors of war-torn France. Saint-Exupéry's observations on the aimless existence of his fellow exiles in Lisbon filled with parties, gambling and spies leads him to examine the nature of existence itself.

About the Author:
Antoine de Saint Exupéry was born in Lyons in 1900. He learned to fly at the age of twelve and became an adventurer and pioneer in aviation. He is the author and illustrator of the enduring and best-selling classic The Little Prince (1943), and the winner of the Grand Prix de l'Académie Française and the National Book Award for Wind, Sand and Stars (1939). In July of 1944, Saint-Exupéry disappeared on a flight from Corsica to France and is thought to have been shot down by German reconnaissance planes.
