Reseña del editor:

In 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby was the editor-in-chief of French Elle, the father of two young childen, a 44-year-old man known and loved for his wit, his style, and his impassioned approach to life. By the end of the year he was also the victim of a rare kind of stroke to the brainstem. After 20 days in a coma, Bauby awoke into a body which had all but stopped working: only his left eye functioned, allowing him to see and, by blinking it, to make clear that his mind was unimpaired. Almost miraculously, he was soon able to express himself in the richest detail: dictating a word at a time, blinking to select each letter as the alphabet was recited to him slowly, over and over again. In the same way, he was able eventually to compose this extraordinary book.
By turns wistful, mischievous, angry, and witty, Bauby bears witness to his determination to live as fully in his mind as he had been able to do in his body. He explains the joy, and deep sadness, of seeing his children and of hearing his aged father's voice on the phone. In magical sequences, he imagines traveling to other places and times and of lying next to the woman he loves. Fed only intravenously, he imagines preparing and tasting the full flavor of delectable dishes. Again and again he returns to an "inexhaustible reservoir of sensations, " keeping in touch with himself and the life around him.
Jean-Dominique Bauby died two days after the French publication of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.
This book is a lasting testament to his life.

Descripción Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 1997. soft. Estado de conservación: New. This is the singular memoir that was the inspiration for Julian Schnabel's brilliant, multiple Oscar-nominated film of the same name, which won accolades at Cannes and was named as the best film of 2007 by critics at the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal. In 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby was the editor in chief of French Elle and the father of two young children, a 43-year-old man known and loved for his wit and his passionate approach to life. By the end of the year, after a rare kind of stroke, Bauby was a prisoner in his own paralyzed body, a victim of locked-in syndrome. The only part he could still move was his left eyelid; he was, in his own words, "like a mind in a jar." Blinking to select letters one by one from a special alphabet, over and over again, Bauby was eventually able to compose this extraordinary book, in which he bears witness to his determination to live as fully in his mind as he had been able to in his body. Bauby died just two days after the original French version was published in 1997."Jean-Dominque Bauby's extraordinary narrative testifies to the infinitude of the human imagination, to the resilient will that drive boundless courage. The heroic composition of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly renders it the most remarkable memoir of our time—perhaps of any time."—Cynthia Ozick 132. Nº de ref. de la librería 70312
