Synopsis: En 1995 un derrame cerebral sumió a Jean-Dominique Bauby en un coma profundo, del que despertó viente días más tarde con el cuerpo completamente paralizado pero con las facultades mentales intactas. Afectado de un síndrome de bloqueo interno sólo podía abrir el ojo izquierdo, su único medio de comunicación con el exterio era parpadeando. Giñaba una vez para asentir y dos para negar. Con su ojo retenía la atención del visitante en las letras del alfabeto que se le dictaban y componía palabras, frases, páginas enteras. Con su ojo escribió este libro.

Con una ironia sutilísima, Bauby, quien antes de sufrir el derrame había triunfado profesionalmente en la revista Elle, deja constancia de sus memorias y reflexiones en un breve libro de sobrecogedora dimensión humana.

Product Description: El 8 de diciembre de 1995, un grave accidente cardiovascular sumio a Jean-Dominique Bauby en un coma profundo, del que salio semanas despues con el cuerpo completamente paralizado pero con las facultades mentales intactas. Padecia el sindrome de cautiverio, una extrana dolencia que provoca una paralisis completa, un encierro en uno mismo, como dentro de una escafandra. Solo podia abrir el ojo izquierdo y su unica ventana al mundo era el parpadeo. Podia oir, comprender, recordar, pero no hablar. Tambien estaban intactas su imaginacion y su memoria: la mariposa. Con su ojo componia palabras, frases y paginas enteras. Primero memorizo y luego dicto todo el libro, letra por letra. De esa manera, Bauby dejo constancia de su existencia y de sus reflexiones en esta breve pero inmensa obra sobre los limites de la dimension humana, y a traves de la escritura prolongo su vida fuera de el, fuera de su cuerpo.
