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.
