    Description

    The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is a memoir that tells us about the life of Jean-Dominique Bauby, a journalist. In the book, he talks about his life before and after a stroke that left him with locked-in syndrome. He died soon after the book was published.

    Summary of the Book

    Jean-Dominique Bauby suffered a massive stroke on December 8th, 1995. Ever since, his life changed drastically as he was almost fully paralysed. He decided to tell his story in a memoir and shared his life experience with the world. The book gives details of Bauby’s life after the stroke and tells us quite a bit about his life before the stroke. The book took ten months to write with Bauby blinking only his left eye. It was a process in which a transcriber would keep reciting the French language frequency-ordered alphabet and waited for Bauby to blink when he wanted to choose the next letter.
