Since the early 1970s, Philip Lee has been active in the newspaper business, chasing stories for The Straits Times with vigour, passion and a note pad in hand. In 2002, he joined Streats and began writing a weekly column for the now defunct daily. His columns, published every Friday, discussed nostalgic events of the past, opined on the burning issues of the present and analysed the idiosyncrasies of interesting individuals he interacted with on the job. But the most popular of his topics were his thought-provoking commentaries on the proper use of English prose and language. The columns ended their print run when the newspaper decided to pull down its shutters in 2004. A year later, The New Paper, where Philip was then a Copy Editor, wanted to bring the Friday column back to life. The column ran with much success, garnering a large readership while it lasted. Fridays with Philip is a collection of the most compelling picks from all his columns to date.
