In his book, "Boy Wonders," national sports columnist Cathal Kelly dips into memories of growing up in west-end Toronto during the 1970 and '80s. By turns funny and poignant, the book captures the immediacy of his life as a child and youth, his fascination with Star Wars, comic books, and pop music, but also recounts his difficult relationship with his absent father and precarious life at home as his mother coped to make ends meet. He talks to Nam Kiwanuka about the treasures and hardships of his early life.
