This is one of the most amazing of autobiographies … Written with one blinking eyelid. Bauby was paralyzed and had the locked-in syndrome. Learned to communicate somehow to his assistant with a morse-like system of blinking his eyelid to the number of a letter’s place in the alphabet.
This book communicates the preciousness of life. Bauby was a talented editor-in-chief at Elle magazine.
