In the fourth volume of selections from his delightfully wise and witty diaries, we see Charles Ritchie, the seasoned (but never stuffy) diplomat, in his last two major postings – as Canadian Ambassador to Washington and as Canadian High Commissioner to London. Full of anecdotes rather than briefing papers (was JFK really “shooing” the new Canadian ambassador out of his office?), Ritchie’s diaries are at their amusing best.

Editorial Reviews

“One of the best diarists who has ever touched pen to paper.”
Toronto Star

“If Canada had produced no other writer of note, Charles Ritchie the diarist, alone, could establish our literary presence.”
