"If Canada had produced no other writer of note, Charles Ritchie the diarist, alone, could establish our literary presence." --"Maclean's""One of the best diarists who has ever touched pen to paper." --"Toronto Star""In Ritchie, Canada has found its very own Pepys." -- "Hamilton Spectator""Distilled delight." -- "The Guardian" "Relish the graceful, faultless prose of a superior stylist." -- Jane Urquhart "There have not been many diarists in the world who have been in his league. His diaries are engaging, witty, insightful, and altogether irresistible." -- "Globe and Mail"
