Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson; and as High Commissioner to London.
"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
