The Harmon Chronicles
by Harmon Leon
ECW Press
ISBN 1-55022-527-8
Published 2002 - Paperback - 250 pages

This is a comedic account of Harmon Leon "testing the waters", or auditioning in various true-life situations.  He gets up to things some of us often wish we had the courage to do.  For example, he checks out what it's like to be a Phone Pyschic; poses as a movie director at the Cannes Film Festival; tries to join the Church of Scientology by posing as a famous German pop star; applies in person to rent a room in a non-smoking, vegetarian house, and pitches up eating a sausage and smoking a cigarette!  He also tries to join the army, navy and marines.  I enjoyed the characters he conjured up for himself in the different situations.  His audacity is admirable and although I didn't find it hilariously funny, it was nevertheless a good laugh.
