This is one of the best biographies that I've read in recent years - elegantly written and without bias. "Saint Ex" was a flawed hero but an incredibly courageous adventurer and a loyal , if thoroughly irresponsible friend, husband and colleague.

"This world of childhood memories will always seem to me hopelessly more real than the other…"I am not sure I have lived since my childhood." It as if the sandstorms and dissident tribes and mechanical failures of the desert had been a dream, Mosie's laundry closet a persistent reality... "There is one thing that will always sadden me, which is to have grown up."
Adulthood was for him an exile, by far a more painful one than the long desolate months at Cape Juby...A happy childhood, too, takes its hostages.
