Charles 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. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In 1712, a slave owner from the West Indies, by the name of Willie Lynch, came to Virgina, at the request of slave owners in that state, and others, to teach them how to better control, and get top production out of their black slaves. What Mr. Lynch told them, and the steps he outlined, guaranteed the faithfulness of the slaves to their masters, in all situations. Today, those same principles, are being used by the Democratic party, to keep the black community, beholden to, and trusting only the Democrats. Thus, they have become the very thing they hated centuries ago, slaves, with the Democrats as their masters.
