About this title:

Synopsis: Nolan, Christopher. Under the eye of the clock. The life story of Christopher Nolan. Preface by John Carey. London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1987. 15 x 23 cm. xii, 163 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear.

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.
