The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


R 150.00


Publication Date: January 2001

Antoine de Saint-Exupery first published The Little Prince in 1943, only a year before his Lockheed P-38 vanished over the Mediterranean during a reconnaissance mission. More than a half century later, this fable of love and loneliness has lost none of its power.

The narrator is a downed pilot in the Sahara Desert, frantically trying to repair his wrecked plane. His efforts are interrupted one day by the apparition of a little, well, prince, who asks him to draw a sheep.

'In the face of an overpowering mystery, you don't dare disobey,' the narrator recalls. 'Absurd as it seemed, a thousand miles from all inhabited regions and in danger of death, I took a scrap of paper and a pen out of my pocket.'

And so begins their dialogue, which stretches the narrator's imagination in all sorts of surprising, childlike directions.
