Lefthanders Reg Fahie and Joe MacDonald have put their lifetime of experiences into an entertaining book called “Lefty” that uses a cartoon character to show the challenges and frustrations facing left-handers in a right-handed world. They have done it in a light-hearted way and while us lefties will recognise all of the situations described in the book they will no doubt, as always, be a revelation to right-handers.
We are not sure all the situations they illustrate are relevant in all countries (some are related to driving on the right for example) and some of them are a bit far-fetched and ignore our ability to adapt and make the best of things, but they do point out a lot of little niggles and annoyances that only apply to us a lefthanders.
There are 74 pages of cartoons like these and each has an explanation for right-handers upside-down at the bottom. Reg has a supply of the hard-back books in Canada and has agreed to send them out direct to Left Handers Club members.
