Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Philippe expresses his willingness to take on new challenges and his love and gratitude for his wife....Stephane describes the obstacles she overcame to bring her husband home from the hospital and her decision to remain married to him (their third child was born after the accident)....Though less poetic than Jean-Dominique Bauby's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, this well-written story is no less remarkable." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

On a July morning ten years ago, Philippe Vigand, a young, vigorous, handsome publishing executive, was walking to work when he heard "a gigantic explosion." Strangely, nobody else seemed to have heard it...for the simple reason that it was in his head. For two months he lay in a coma. When he awoke, he was completely paralyzed, but his mind was intact. He was suffering from locked-in syndrome. After months of hospital care, Philippe was brought home where an infrared Camera enabled him to "speak" and "write" by blinking his eyes. Written in two parts, the first by Philippe using the magic camera, the second by his wife, Stephane, this moving work traces the evolution of the illness and their relationship and shows how love and devotion can overcome almost anything.
