My Left Foot

Description: Christy Brown was born a victim of cerebral palsy. But the hapless, lolling baby concealed the brilliantly imaginative and sensitive mind of a writer who would take his place among the giants of Irish literature. This is Christy Brown’s own story. He recounts his childhood struggle to learn to read, write, paint and finally type, with the toe of his left foot. In this manner he wrote his bestseller “Down all the Days”. Christy Brown was born in 1932. He was one of 23 children born to a Dublin bricklayer. A victim of cerebral palsy, he could not control his speech or his movement, apart from his left foot. This enabled him to paint and type this autobiography “My Left Foot is the autobiography of Christy Brown that covers his first 22 years. The writing is clear and easy to connect to, a satisfying read on a Saturday morning. My Left Foot was made into an Oscar-winning movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis.”
