Timeline of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The author of the Little Prince led a rich and eventful life. The “Work” section offers a timeline of the most important years in Saint-Exupéry’s life. His books, his time at l’Aéropostale, his missions and his travels, etc. 

Some of the most significant events feature a link, so click on the word or name to find out who Consuelo was, what “Flight to Arras” is about, and so on.


The section is immensely useful if you have read The Little Prince without really knowing anything about its author. Don’t miss the section on “The Birth of the Book”, which relates a number of anecdotes about the creation of this record-selling book that was written and drawn in the United States.
