The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
This novel has been dictated by Jean- Dominique Bauby, who was the editor-in-chief of French Magazine, Elle. This book is known as his lasting testament, as he dictated the book while being bed-ridden, and after losing all abilities. The novel tells his struggle and determination to live, even if he was paralysed. He explains the joys and sadness he feels, when he sees his kids and hears his father. Through his writing, he inspired people who are handicapped to fulfil their lives through imagination, and to carry on living if they can breathe.
Drafted by Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters is a novel which has been qualified as mind- disturbing. This book tells the downfalls of the modelling and fashion industry.
