My Left Foot

My Left Foot ranks among the Irish literary greats .The closest kin would have to be 'The Portrait Of An Artist As A Young Man' by James Joyce.
The book is a biographical sketch written when
Christy was growing up in Dublin. He was born with a condition known as cerebral palsy and it's through the palpable hope and affection of his mother that an artist emerged from inside a shy young man.
This classic was eventually made into a movie in 1989 starring Daniel Day-Lewis who made a stunning portrayal of the author.Throughout his lifetime, Mr Brown wrote poems and books, he also painted but this one stands out from the rest.
You can order the book here.
