Publisher: Paul Zsolnay Verlag
ISBN: 9783552058668
Release Date: 2017-06-05
Genre: Fiction

Er war 43 Jahre alt, Vater zweier Kinder und ein erfolgreicher Redakteur, als ihn am 8. Dezember 1995 ein Gehirnschlag all seiner bisherigen Lebensmöglichkeiten beraubte. Fünfzehn Monate später beendete er ein Buch, das er allein mit dem Blinzeln seines linken Augenlids - die einzige verbleibende Verständigungsmöglichkeit - diktiert hatte. Es ist ein einzigartiges Dokument, ein Akt der Selbstbehauptung des Geistes angesichts der totalen physischen Niederlage. Die Krankheit hat Bauby zu einem Schriftsteller gemacht, der mit bewundernswertem Humor seine Situation analysiert. Ein erschütterndes Selbstzeugnis, ein einzigartiges Stück Literatur und ein Buch, das Mut macht zum Leben.
