The Powerful Legacy of Upper Canada College
Ranging across three generations, the "old boys" of Upper Canada College, the flagship of the country's elite prep schools, recount with extraordinary candour and insight the ways in which their lives were shaped -- and in some cases scarred -- by their experiences at UCC. Besides the school's success stories -- Ted Rogers, Conrad Black, Michael Ignatieff, Robertson Davies, Michael Snow, et al -- we hear the voices of victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse. The book sparked the conviction of three former teachers and a successful multi-million dollar class action suit against UCC.
"A masterful oral history" The Globe and Mail
"From the obviously repressed through the painfully revealing to the often hilarious...stranger than fiction."
