“It’s pure pleasure to enter the mind and heart of Holy Denver’s soulful, sympathetic protagonist, Elizabeth Zwelland. Throughout this unique story—in which the author skillfully blends the economic downturn, Beat poetics, and the Columbine High School shooting—I wanted to hug Elizabeth, have coffee with her, and cheer her on.”

Kasey Jueds, author of Keeper and winner of the 2012 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize

It’s 2009, the height of the economic crash, and thirty-six-year-old Elizabeth Zwelland has come down in the world. Due to fallout from Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, she loses her prestigious Manhattan publishing job and is forced to move to Colorado, the home of her Beat-poet father. The only job Elizabeth can find is at an independent bookstore in downtown Denver, where she earns minimum wage and shelves the books she once edited.

Embittered by her many losses, Elizabeth becomes increasingly scornful of her coworkers and the bookstore’s customers. Her behavior leads to a shocking confrontation, which forces her on a deep emotional journey that includes entering the Columbine tragedy and the JonBenét Ramsey murder. Elizabeth’s awakening occurs not by following a particular religion, but by living through painful events and opening up to life in Denver—or Holy Denver, as Jack Kerouac christened the city in On the Road.

Christopher Hartley is the chair of the English department at the North Campus of Garden State University—a place he refers to as a “minimum intellectual facility.” Recently returned from a medical leave begun after the death of his wife, Holly, sixteen months earlier, he is seeking some measure of peace.

As Chris prepares a brand-new course called Music in Literature, he hopes the combination of the two disciplines—a pairing that has always fascinated him—will help him overcome his grief and deal with the estrangement of his daughter, Ivy. Peace, however, is as elusive as music itself. As he deals with his own health problems and the possibility of a new relationship with a much younger colleague, Chris moves through a chaotic and occasionally amusing fugue in which lust, love, self-worth, redemption, and meaning interweave.

This complex novel explores how music and literature aid one man as he deals with grief, considers the meaning of life and death, and struggles to come to terms with his own mortality.

“I was born late and have been slow ever since.
I was supposed to be born in April, but I arrived on June 19.
Explaining my late arrival, the doctor said, ‘Somebody made a mistake,’ and I took offense to that.”

—Joe Perry

Like life, Joe Perry’s stories are a mixture of the sometimes humorous and sometimes serious. They all take place around the same time period as Forrest Gump (but without all that emphasis on running). And like Forrest, the author himself is an average person who has lived a life that is anything but. During his years of military service, he was a messenger for President Lyndon Baines Johnson. During his years of spiritual service as a minister, he was blessed to be called to as a messenger for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords on a higher plane.

Journal of an Average American started out as Joe’s private journal, but it quickly grew into a book of introspection, punctuated with philosophy, poetry, sermons, articles, laments, and history. Throughout, it celebrates average people as its main characters and source of all knowledge, insight, and humor.

As a common person, writing about common people and their common experiences, Joe Perry was surprised to come to the epiphany that people and their experiences are really very uncommon after all.

By John Sinsimer
Harry Bonner is the new mayor of Comptons Pond, a small suburban town where he goes about his days officiating weddings and attempting to solve post-election issues. But one evening after curiosity leads him to open a locked file cabinet in his office, Harry has no idea that what he finds inside will forever change the lives of the people in his community, his own family included.

After a paper falls out of a binder inside the file cabinet, Harry soon discovers that it is a proposal to clean up toxic waste in his town, specifically at Smithfield Powder Works. With assistance from his wife, a seasoned environmental investigator, a borough attorney, and several environmental activists, Harry begins what quickly becomes a perilous investigation that he hopes will help build a case against a company with executives determined to do whatever it takes to cover up their illegal activities, even as more citizens in Comptons Pond become gravely ill.

The Brook is the compelling story of a small town mayor and his crew of experts as they embark on a race against time to save their town and its people from the tragic effects of corporate greed.

Katherine is a strange Bronx girl who “hears” the voices of the constellations. Abetted by a building super and a disgraced NASA administrator, she becomes a revered faith healer, only to be betrayed by her inner voice, when it tells her to have a child.

Set in eras ranging from the sixties to the near future, Simon’s stories blend sexual tension, religious feeling, intellect and madness into a compelling brew. In a senior-living facility, a man plots murder with a woman he believes to be a famous author. A philosophy professor and her boyfriend contemplate suicide. Their every move followed by cameras, the contestants in a reality show need to complete a “main task,” but no one knows what it is. After years on the run from the F.B.I., a bank robber enters a monastery, while his lover/accomplice stews in boredom.

In the words of one of Simon’s characters: “The sacred and the profane lie close together, separated by the thinnest membrane, almost nothing.” Breeching this boundary, The Ballad of St. Katherine presents a fascinating set of personalities, some slain by their obsessions, others able to come to terms with their lives, or their deaths.

It is September 1973. Brilliant young philosopher Phillip Kinsella, fleeing the political unrest of Chicago’s anti-war protests and the social turbulence of racial demonstrations, arrives at the Sorbonne in Paris to begin what he believes to be a two-year postgraduate assignment. His intellectual pursuits, however, are soon disrupted by his new friends in his Latin Quarter neighborhood, and, as their mysteries are revealed, love, jealousy, and even Phillip’s secrets unravel in violence.

Ultimately cast adrift in Paris, a disillusioned Phillip is offered a research opportunity by an aging scientist, Professor Cortez. But the tranquility of this Navajo professor’s summer institute in New Mexico evaporates quickly as a mélange of science, heroism, and superstition intertwine. Inevitably drawn with Professor Cortez and his twin brother, Victor, into a vortex of violence in the dangerous mountain elevations of South America and an occluded realm where betrayal is exposed, Phillip is pushed to the limits of his faith. Now he must choose between his convictions and the Cortez brothers’ myth to save their lives and his own.

In this tale of adventure, the world of academic idealism collides with the human quest for earthly treasure as a philosopher’s beliefs are tested in ways he never could have imagined.

When four average teenagers—Kris, Charity, Duncan, and Ian—are invited out on a Friday night in June, they think it’s just another stupid party. The new girl, the punk, the snob, and the nice guy don’t expect anything particularly exciting to happen, so they are surprised when they find themselves, over the course of three days, unceremoniously brought together by both chance and an unerring kick to the family jewels.

As the weekend passes in a whirlwind of crazy, the four of them must navigate around a girl who has seen way too many bad villain movies, spying siblings, sickening merry-go-rounds, overprotective parents, July First, suspicious private investigators, and a potentially homicidal five-year-old kid.

But each of four is more than a single label, and perhaps—just perhaps—they will find out along the way that they have more in common than they thought.
