In his first novel, Saint-Exupery pays homage to "those elemental divinities - night, day, mountain, sea and storm, " turning an account of a routine mail flight from France to North Africa into an epic rendering of the pioneer days of commercial aviation. "Southern Mail" is also a poignant reminiscence of a tragic affair, in which uncertainties of love and flight enhance the mystery of one another.

From the Back Cover:

"Certainly no one else has come even close to Saint-Exupery, not only in recapturing the detailed sensations of flight by air, but also--and more importantly--in transforming them into something convincingly poetic." -- The New York Times Book Review

In his first novel, Saint-Exupery pays homage to "those elemental divinities--night, day, mountain, sea and storm," turning an account of a routine mail flight from France to North Africa into an epic rendering of the pioneer days of commercial aviation. Southern Mail is also a poignant reminiscence of a tragic affair, in which the uncertainties of love and flight enhance the mystery of one another.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944), best known as the author of The Little Prince, was also a pioneer aviator. In 1944 he flew his plane over the Mediterranean on a World War II mission from which he never returned.
