The Measure of A Man: The Story of A Father, A Son, and A Suit, by JJ Lee
It's an odd feeling to read a memoir by an old high school friend. JJ's book was nominated for the Governor General's Literary Award, and rightly so. Funny, poignant, and well-researched, the book left me with a new perspective on lapels (one which, frankly, I kind of wish I didn't now have ;-). It also made me realize that as a teen, I was so self-absorbed in my own angst, I had no idea what anyone else was really going through.
Nice work, JJ.
