Biography & Autobiography. Self-Improvement. Nonfiction. HTML:A triumphant memoir by the former editor-in-chief of French Elle that reveals an indomitable spirit and celebrates the liberating power of consciousness.

In 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby was the editor-in-chief of French Elle, the father of two young children, 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.

"I am fading away. Slowly but surely. Like the sailor who watches the home shore gradually disappear, I watch my past recede. My old life still burns within me, but more and more if it is reduced to the ashes of memory." ( )

This book was definitely a bit different than I expected. Bauby has locked-in syndrome so cannot communicate easily, but clearly his mind is fully intact. This book is really a tribute to imagination and life's beauty. It's more a series of short essays - - some dreams, some fantasies, and some memories - - and together they form a memoir that is a tribute to appreciating life and the small things.

Intellectually, I appreciated this book more than the 3 stars indicated. I certainly admire the optimistic spirit in which it was written given Bauby's situation. In fact, I feel this book is one that I might appreciate even more on a re-read.

However, I wasn't truly emotionally moved by it for whatever reason, and I think that's mostly because I don't generally like dream sequences no matter what nor fantasy . . .so those chapters were diversions from the main experience that I didn't fully enjoy reading. ( )

For all those unfamiliar with this true story, it evokes an array of emotions.:sadness, curiosity and appreciation for life among them. Beautifully written, it engages at a deep level sad that it is. It's difficult to fathom how someone completely paralyzed, unable to speak, move or gesture could compose such a memoir. Fortunately the award winning film lived up to the story. A quick read, it's worth adding to your list if for no other reason than to remind us that we should appreciate each moment. ( )

I had seen the movie and was so moved I've wanted to read the book since. Ran across it in our local bookstore and the writing is poetic, beautiful as a celebration of life, and a celebration of the ordinary. ( )
