Author Christopher Nolan was born in Ireland on September 6, 1965. Due to being deprived of oxygen at birth, he suffered from cerebral palsy and could only move his head and eyes. He used a pointer attached to his head to write his books. At the age of 15, he published his first book Dam-Burst of Dreams (1981). His other novels are The Banyan Tree (1999) and Under the Eye of the Clock, which won the Whitbread Book of the Year in 1988. He also won the Medal of Excellence from the United Nation's Society of Writers, The Sunday Independent-Irish Life Arts Award for Literature and Ireland's Person of the Year Award in 1988. He died due to oxygen deprivation caused by ingestion of food into his airways on February 20, 2009 at the age of 43.
