This book is short but amazing, more so by the circumstance leading to it's being written. I loved this so much and i suggest everyone take a look at it. An english translation from the original french, it is a true story accounting the last years of the Editor of a famous fashion magazine who suffered a stroke and had locked in syndrome. Through the use of his only moving body part, his left eye he dictated his experiences being locked in his own body. Truely powerful. A french film adaptation has just been released.
