What a treat to read this excerpt from Saint-Exupery's memoir.
Ah, I had forgotten the elegance of Saint-Exupery, so long has it been since I opened those pages. Thank you for transporting me for a little while.
Saint-Exupery's gentle viewpoint reverberates in graceful language, yet his subject and mind are tough. Of that tension, that vibration between (apparent) opposites, he creates Art, a profound decorum. Merci.
