Vol de nuit by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Le petit prince is a masterpiece of course, but i like Vol de nuit so much. it foreshadows the author's own mysterious disappearance. it has emerged, whether true or not, that the brother of a famous German *Russian* singer shot him down. and of course Guerlain's perfume named after this features a beatiful deco design bottle, though i'm not a fan of perfumes.
