In Diplomatic Passport, we follow his career as he climbs the rungs of the diplomatic-service ladder ' as an advisor to the Canadian Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference in 1946; as a Counsellor at the Canadian Embassy in Paris, where his friends celebrate Ritchie Week ' to the city's surprise; as Assistant, Deputy, and Acting Under-Secretary of State for External Affairs in Ottawa; as Canadian Ambassador to Bonn, where he finds himself reciting Little Red Riding Hood in German at a state dinner; and as Permanent Ambassador of Canada to the United Nations. From the Trade Paperback edition158ocn490042220book19740.63Ritchie, CharlesThe siren years : a Canadian diplomat abroad, 1937-1945BiographyDiariesCharles Ritchie, one of Canada's most distinguished diplomats, was a born diarist, a man whose daily record of his life is so well written that it leaps from the page. In wartime England, Ritchie, as Second Secretary at the Canadian High Commission, served as private secretary to Vincent Massey, whose second-in-command was Lester B. Pearson, future prime minister of Canada. In a perfect position to observe both statecraft and the London social whirl that continued even during the war, Ritchie provides a fascinating, perceptive, and (surprisingly) humorous picture of the London Blitz ' the people in the parks, the shabby streets, the heightened love affairs ' and the vagaries of the British at war. There are also glimpses of the great, and portraits of noted artists and writers that he knew well. A vivid document of a period and a wonderful piece of writing, The Siren Years has become a classic. From the Trade Paperback edition127ocn496035405book19770.76Ritchie, CharlesAn appetite for life : the education of a young diarist, 1924-1927BiographyDiariesCharles Ritchie's first volume of diaries, The Siren Years, created a sensation when it was published in 1974. Besides winning the Governor General's Award for Non-fiction, it was hailed by reviewers on both sides of the Atlantic. An Appetite for Life, his second volume, first published in 1977, deals with his youth in Halifax and his career at Oxford ' the years when Charles Ritchie turned from a callow, blundering youth into a callow, blundering young man. As these diaries show, Charles Ritchie had a sharp eye, a keen ear, a highly developed sense of the absurd, and ' despite his unhappy knack of landing 'at on his face ' a thorough "appetite for life." This is not only a hilariously funny book, but it presents a vivid picture of two worlds ' Halifax and Oxford in the mid-twenties ' that are now long gone. It also introduces us to an astonishing range of characters, but the most astonishing of all is the young Charles Ritchie himself.
