My Left Foot, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


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".

Review by

Christy Browns's autobiography tells of his fight to prove his intelligence in the face of his struggles to communicate. A sensitively written and gentle book and easy to read because of that.
