Christy Brown (1932-1981) is the author of a memoir My Left Foot (made into a movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis) and the novels Down All the Days and A Shadow on Summer.
The legendary Irish capital has never seemed more fascinating, a city of wild moods, populated by exotic women and mysterious leprechauns. Brown writes with an exuberant, almost savange, spirit. ...[He] equals and at times surpasses his earlier triumph, Down All the Days.
— St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Christy Brown seems to possess limitless stores of energy. In torrents of talk, bursts of song and verse, he submerges us in scenes reminiscent of those non-stop binges in Donleavy and Cary.
