Notes

First UK edition, first impression. Saint-Exupéry is most famous for his landmark children's book Le Petit Prince (1943), but Night Flight, first published as Vol de Nuit (1931), is his greatest literary work, a remarkable modernist treatment of the new age, man's position in it and the relationship of technology and humanity, selected by Connolly in his 100 Books of the Modern Movement.
