“A novel which focuses on a young cripple, his childhood and his coming of age, who acts as a detached observer of life in the slums of Dublin, during the 1940s and 50s.” (Amazon)

″Brown’s self-proclaimed masterpiece, Down All the Days, was an ambitious project drawn largely from a playful expansion of My Left Foot; it also became an international best-seller, translated into fourteen languages. The Irish Times reviewer Bernard Share claimed the work was “the most important Irish novel since Ulysses.” Like James Joyce, Brown employed the stream-of-consciousness technique and sought to document Dublin’s culture through the use of humour, accurate dialects and intricate character description. Down All the Days was followed by a series of other novels, including A Shadow on Summer (1972), Wild Grow the Lilies (1976) and A Promising Career (published posthumously in 1982). He also published three poetry collections: Come Softly to My Wake, Background Music and Of Snails and Skylarks. All the poems are included in The Collected Poems of Christy Brown.” (Wikipedia)
