Conversation with Richard Hughes
Richard Hughes, China watcher, legendary foreign correspondent, bon viveur and larger-than-life personality – some Asians who found his name difficult to pronounce appropriately called him Mr Hooges – was once described by John Le Carre as ‘a sort of journalistic Eiffel Tower’. In 1975 I recorded an extended interview with Richard Hughes during a visit to Australia from his base in Hong Kong, now available on topyarns.
