Product Description


My Double Life is Don Harron's insightful, unique story of 77 years in the entertainment business.


From having worked with Don Harron as his director at different times through the fifties and sixties, I can confirm he is the funniest – but more important – the most professional of artists.

Interesting but too much about Don Haron and his early life in showbiz, not enough Charlie.

Fills in the Gaps March 29 2014
By J. Bossart - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An interesting read that fills in the enormous information void regarding Charlie Farquharson. As a more recent Parry Sound resident I was aware that the town was once well known as the 'hometown' of the country philosopher Charlie. I had even seen Charlie from time-to-time on television over the years and enjoyed his shtick. But that was pretty much it.

This book tells the story of Charlie and his creator Don Harron. It proves that as my high school football coach told us, "if you work hard enough, and long enough, you may need some success". Charlie is far from a fluque but rather the product of years of hard work and networking by a serious performer and playwright.

Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the book was the name dropping. I never realized how many successful performers had worked their way up from the bottom.

It's a shame that Parry Sound has never embraced Charlie Farquharson. His social insights are much richer than what passes for wisdom these days.
