Product Information

My Left Foot is Christy Brown's inspirational story of his early life, his battle against the restraints of cerebral palsy and his struggle to learn to read, write, and paint, all with the aid of his left foot.

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, IDown all the Days/I, which was very successful. His novels include IA Promising Career/I, IA Shadow on Summer/I and IWild Grow the Lillies/I, and he also published his poetry in ICollected Poems/I. Christy Brown died in 1981.
