News & opinion on Greater China and the even Greater Beyond: by Biff Cappuccino.

Saturday, April 30, 2005

An amusing 1985 interview/lecture with Han Suyin, author of a number of highly readable novels and biographies on China. Am going through her sympathetic biography of Mao. Like Farley Mowat, she's quite the pleasure to read even if her judgement is questionable at times. Great to hear someone hyper, informed, and skeptical belly up to the mike. Quite the motor-mouth, and with a whiff of the fanatic about her, she runs amok over the interviewer. (audio link)

A massive archive of interviews with celebrity authors is here.
