Author and journalist James FitzGerald discusses his life and craft. James FitzGerald’s Old Boys: the Powerful Legacy of Upper Canada College was a controversial look at English Canada’s ruling class families, and a factor in the criminal conviction of three former teachers and a multi-million dollar class action suit. What Disturbs Our Blood: A Son’s Quest to Redeem the Past, a multi-layered exploration of madness and high achievement within his prominent Toronto medical family, won the 2010 Writers’ Trust Non-Fiction Prize. His recently published Dreaming Sally is a true story of first love, sudden death and synchronicity in 1968.
