John Meisel, beloved Queen's professor, IIGR associate and gifted raconteur, has penned a spellbinding memoir entitled A Life of Learning and Other Pleasures: John Meisel's Tale. The story begins in 1923 in Vienna as John recounts his early schooling and traces his family's escape from war-torn Europe. He provides a revealing insider's view of the CRTC (which he chaired), and describes the experiences of a Canadian professor straddling university and government cultures. Astonishing in its depth and insights, the tale is told in the wise and witty voice of this singularly remarkable man.
