Titel: The Making of a Spy: a Political Odyssey
Verlag: Robert Davies Publishing, Montreal
From the book cover: Gordon Lunan was a participant in the infamous Gouzenko affair in the 1950s - Igor Gouzenko, a cipher clerk in the Soviet embassy in Ottawa brought a shirtful of incriminating documents to the RCMP about an espionage ring operating in Canada. Lunan was a Captain in the Canadian Armed Forces and speechwriter for Paul Martin Sr. For his role in the Gouzenko affair, Lunan spent five years in Kingston Penitentiary. Not surprisingly, his story differs in many respects from the official version. ; 295 pages. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 100722
Inhaltsangabe: Gordon Lunans autobiographical account of his formative years in London and Spain, and his political evolution in Canada which led him to become a part of a WWII Soviet spy ring are told here in a literate and highly-readable narrative. This is a real page-turner of a book, revealing secrets about the functioning of Canadian justice during the years following the infamous Gouzenko affair, in which Lunan was implicated. His years in Kingston penitentiary are narrated, as is his life after release. Fascinating and unique.
Über den Autor: Longtime advertising copywriter in London and Canada, then prisoner for his espionage activities, Lunan subsequently became a strawberry farmer in the rich farmlands near Ottawa, living in a house he built himself.
