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.
