Book Review in Three Sentences

Book Review in Three Sentences is a segment I used to write on one of my old blogs. It is exactly as it sounds–a concise revisiting of a book I’ve just read.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby

This book came fervently recommended, and the same task has been passed on to me. It is a model of French humor, the wry witticisms I grew to love in Paris. Even more remarkable is the context of Bauby’s humor: conveyed letter by letter through corresponding blinks, his only means of communication after a massive stroke left everything but his mind and his left eye paralyzed.

 

 

Up next: Exposing the Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him by Humberto Fontova

This book jumped into my fated hands at Books & Books. You know with a title this brazen the facts have to be solid. I now have something to shove into the arms of the Che-wearing insolents.
