The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
These notes were contributed by members of the GradeSaver community. The protagonist of the book, who also happens to be its author, has a condition called pseudocoma, which means that he appears to be in a coma, because he is unable to move, speak or communicate verbally at all, but he is able to think, and to realize the severity of his own predicament, and also able to communicate by blinking his eyes. The condition did not manifest himself until he suffered from a stroke, which caused him to fall into a coma that lasted for almost three weeks. When he woke up he was mentally capable; he knew where he was, who his visitors were, who he was, but he was physically paralyzed aside from a limited amount of eye movement. His stroke seemed to come out of nowhere; he was traveling to work listening to The Beatles, and then after work goes to pick up his son to take him to the theater, but on the way there his mind and his vision seem to go blurry. He remembers wondering where his son has gone, and then everything else goes dark.
