About this title

Synopsis:

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.

From the Inside Flap:

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.

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
