“I met Saint-Exupéry in 1935”

Jean-Pierre Dizengremel was 10 years old when he met Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in Athens. After a lecture, his parents invited Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his wife Consuelo to dinner. Young as he was, he remembers Antoine’s stature and the air of the aviator that clung to him. One of the amusing anecdotes Jean-Pierre recalls is how the pilot shared his food with the family cat, or blew bubbles for the Dizengremel’s dog to catch and burst.


A priceless account, so why not listen to it right now?
