Praise

“An elegantly alluring and poignant love story . . . written with intimacy and immediacy . . . Spare and beautifully crafted, the novel vividly evokes the world of fashion design and the French ex-pat community in New York during WWII. In a word: magnifique!”
—Sandra Gulland, author of the Josephine B. Trilogy and Mistress of the Sun

“Gorgeously evokes the fashion scene of 1940s Manhattan and provides a smart, sure-handed glimpse into the hearts and minds of two women in love with literary sensation Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. A deft examination of love, desire and ambition.”
—Cathy Marie Buchanan, author of The Painted Girls
 
“With subtlety and finesse, Ania Szado draws us into the circle of charismatic expatriate, pilot, and author Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s world . . . Thoughtful, fascinating, beautifully told.”
—Therese Anne Fowler, author of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald
 
“Szado has created a fascinating time and place and has risen wonderfully to the challenge of portraying real historical characters in fiction—bravo!”
—Annabel Lyon, author of The Golden Mean and The Sweet Girl
 
“A novel that is so true and so right that it makes you wonder why nobody has written it before. Studio Saint-Ex is like an ocean undertow: I fell in and could not get out except by gorging on the story as it pulled me toward the final sentence . . . an unputdownable novel about twentieth century fashion, French expatriates in Manhattan during World War II, the miracle of creative genius and the lives of the great writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery and the women he loved. Open the first page and prepare to fall.”
—Lawrence Hill, author of Someone Knows My Name
 
“A ravishing glimpse into the early days of American haute couture and into the private life of one of the 20th Century’s most notorious authors. Ania Szado’s writing is nothing less than sublime.”
—Alison Pick, author of Far To Go
