The intimate revelation that totally altered the life of Pozzo di Borgo, author of Second souffle.
His life was one long success story… until he suffered a paragliding accident. Everything was perfect for Philippe Pozzo di Borgo until… Read more tragedy struck and left him quadriplegic. In Le Second souffle, he tells about his accident, his wife’s death and his life shattered by handicap and solitude.
In this second book, he expands on his life after the accident; nothing was as it used to be, but above all he discovered that we cannot live alone.
Now dependent, he was able to measure to what extent he had been « handicapped » before – in his meetings with others – a prisoner of the role he had to play. The essence of our lives lies in our relations with others.
With his friends and family or with strangers, the discovery of « face-to-face » encounters was a revelation for Philippe Pozzo di Borgo. In that « you and me » exchange with others, we express all that is finest in humanity.
A poignant testimony on the discovery of the Other, and dependence.
