NORTH tells the story of a charged meeting between Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife to aviator Charles, and Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the man she felt best understood her work. Their brief meeting is the beginning point in a spiral of events and memories that ulitmately make NORTH the story of one woman's struggle to orient herself, reconcile motherhood with work and love with duty and to articulate the responsibility of the artist to a world sunk in war.
In keeping with the for/word company's creative technique, NORTH is based in historical record. The text is constructed exclusively from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's prolific letters and journals, memoirs, fiction, poetry, and wartime polemics. It also draws from material written by Charles Lindbergh and by Antoine de Sait-Exupery, including his poetic works on flight, his journals and letters, and his famous children's book, The Little Prince.
