Christy Brown has a keen, thirsty mind and is trapped inside a body controlled by cerebral palsy. Luckily Christy is treated just like all the other children in his Irish family of 22 children. Over many years of frustration he learns to express himself throught first painting with his left foot, then writing.
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.
