On December 8, 1995, Elle magazine editor-in-chief Jean-Dominque Bauby suffered a massive stroke that left him completely paralyzed with the exception of movement in his left eyelid. Over the course of two years and with the help of an aide, Bauby used his functioning eyelid to dictate, by blinking, an extraordinary memoir that captures with the richest detail the depths of his memories, mind, and imagination.
