Summary
""Beautifully written. Utterly life-affirming." --Alan Rickman. In a memoir in the tradition of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and My Left Foot and a #1 bestseller upon its initial release in Ireland, a young filmmaker diagnosed with ALS gives us "a story of courage, of heart, of coming back for more, of love and struggle and the power of both" (Joseph O'Connor). In 2008, Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease. He was given four years to live. In 2010, in a state of lung-function collapse, Simon knew with crystal clarity that now was not his time to die. Against all prevailing medical opinion, he chose to ventilate in order to stay alive. In It's Not Yet Dark, the young filmmaker, a husband and father of five small children, draws us deeply into his inner world. Told in simply expressed and beautifully stark prose, it is an astonishing journey into a life that, though brutally compromised, is lived more fully than most, revealing at its core the potent power love has to carry us through the days. Written using an eye-gaze computer, It's Not Yet Dark is an unforgettable book about relationships and family, about what connects and separates us as people, and, ultimately, about what it means to be alive"--
