RUSSIAN SPIES EXPOSED!
A Discussion with an Actual Former York University Student about Richard Rohmer’s Red Arctic
A former York University student responded to questions from Reading Richard Rohmer by email. Here is a transcript of the exchange, edited to remove some sections for reasons of national security
Reading Richard Rohmer: The plot of Richard Rohmer's Red Arctic hinges on York University in 1989. Turns out? Riddled with sexy Soviet agents. Was this your experience?
Eileen Gallagher McPhee: York in the 80's did feel like I imagined Siberia would feel like so the Soviet agents might work. I was only there at night and the parking lots were vast and chilly.
Reading Richard Rohmer: Can I quote you -- anonymously, if you'd like -- about York on the Rohmer blog? Do you want to comment? Do you want to add anything?
Eileen Gallagher McPhee: Quote freely… Full disclosure I was actually at York from 1990-92 so the agents may have left by then.
