Boy wondersBoy wonders : a memoir

By Cathal Kelly

Cathal Kelly grew up in the seventies and eighties, decades when dressing like Michael Jackson seemed like a good idea and The Beachcombers –“an adventure show about logging”–seemed to make sense.By turns funny, elegiac and insightful, Boy Wonders is an unvarnished celebration of grow­ing up and stumbling toward identity. Winner of the 2019 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
