(1)
Inspirational story about the battle against the restraints of cerebral palsy. Brown learnt to read, write and paint with his left foot, and went on to become one of the greats of Irish literature. First published in 1954, it was made into a critically acclaimed Oscar-winning film starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
Portrait
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. He later wrote an autobiographical novel, Down all the Days, which was very successful. His novels include A Promising Career, A Shadow on Summer and Wild Grow the Lillies, and he also published his poetry in Collected Poems. Christy Brown died in 1981.

This book is the autobiography of Christy Brown who was born with cerebral palsy. Although all doctors told Christy’s parents that he was dumb and crippled but his mum believed in her son and taught him much. With five years he took with his left foot a chalk and drew with the chalk between the toes on the floor. This was the start of his extraordinary life. This story shows how much a person can reach if he or she is sponsored and encouraged. I can recommend this book to everyone who is interested in a true and moving story.
