9780753807095: Under the Eye of the Clock

This is the story of Joseph Meehan, born cruelly handicapped and known to the world as 'the crippled boy'. Filled with insight into the soul inside a broken body and warm with the beauties of the Irish landscape it is the story of Joseph's fight to escape the restrictions and confines of his existence. UNDER THE EYE OF THE CLOCK can also be read as the autobiography of its author, Christopher Nolan.

Review:

A remarkable work by several measures, Under the Eye of the Clock is the autobiography--told slyly through a third person alter-ego--of Christopher Nolan, struck at birth with brain damage and left paralyzed, spastic and mute. His first book, Dam-Burst of Dreams, written when he was a teen, was a collection of poems that exploded with linguistic virtuosity, earning him comparisons to Joyce and Yeats. Nolan, whose disability requires that someone cup his chin while he pushes a head-mounted pointer at the keyboard, tells here of battles in an un-handicapped world, the heroic efforts of his family and the sights of Ireland that surround him. The book won England's Whitbread prize.

About the Author:

Christopher Nolan, born in Mullingar, Ireland, was a poet and author. His works include the classic UNDER THE EYE OF THE CLOCK, THE BANYAN TREE and the collection of poetry, DAM-BURST OF DREAMS. He died in 2009 aged 43.
