Author Bio for Werth, Léon

Léon Werth (1878-1955) was a French novelist and art critic. Born in Eastern France of Jewish heritage, he was an exceptional student who studied at the Lycée Henri-IV in Paris. He left school and became an art critic for several magazines. He published his first novel "La Maison Blanche" in 1913. After a short stint serving in the army in World War I, he continued writing and published an anti-war novel "Calvel, Soldat" in 1919 which gave a realistic portrayal of trench warfare. He was a close friend of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who dedicated "Le Petit Prince" (The Little Prince) to Werth. During the German invasion of France in 1940, he and his wife fled to a village in the Jura mountains. He wrote an eyewitness account which he gave to Exupery who smuggled it out of France, but it was lost and not recovered until 1992. It was later published as "33 Days". After the war he continued to contribute to magazines, in particular Liberté de l'Esprit. (librarything.com)
