Meet the Author


Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944) was born in Lyons, France. He wrote The Little Prince in the United States during a two-year self-imposed exile from occupied France. A year after the book’s publication in 1943, Saint-Exupery disappeared over the Mediterranean while flying a reconnaissance mission for his French air squadron. Best known throughout the world as the author and illustrator of The Little Prince, Saint-Exupery wrote several other books that also have become classics of world literature.

Viggo Mortensen is an artist mostly known for his acting work in movies like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises, The Road, A History of Violence, and Alatriste, to name a few of his more recent projects. Later this year he will appear in Walter Salles' adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On The Road and in Ana Piterbarg's Todos Tenemos Un Plan. He has also taken part in various recordings of poetry, short stories, and music. These include readings of Jack Kerouac's On The Road journals for the New Yorker Out Loud series, of his own introduction for Houghton Mifflin's The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2004, as well as numerous poetry and music recordings from his own Perceval Press label, including Canciones de Invierno, Reunion, and Time Waits for Everyone. In addition to his film and recording work, Mortensen has published several books of poetry and photography, and has exhibited his photographs and paintings in galleries and museums in the U.S., Iceland, Denmark, Cuba and New Zealand.
