GEDDES, Gary. Chinada : Memoirs of the Gang of Seven. (Dunvegan, Ontario) :Quadrant Editions, (1982). Pp (8),1-163,(1). 8vo, photo-illustrated red ca rd covers. "What happens when seven writers as diverse as Alice Monro, Adele Wiseman, Patrick Lane, Robert Kroetsch, Suzanne Paradis, Geoff Hancock, and Gary Geddes take off in a group to discover a country as little known and exotic as the People's Republic of China, a country that has figured prominently for years in their imaginations? Chinada: Memoirs of the Gang of Seven is a moving, and often humourous, account of that incredible journey. It records in poems, essays, and reminiscences, as well as 41 pages of photographs, their encounters with people and places as they explore Beijing, Xian, and Guangzhou in the company of their hosts in the Chinese Writers' Association. It also documents a historic moment in the cultural life of both countries." - from rear cover.
