By Norman Simon

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.

This book contains a collection of fictional short stories and non-fiction articles compiled over a number of years. The fiction is light and frequently humorous, while the articles tend to be of a more serious nature. Subjects range from the used car salesman to a story on weight that segues into a short discussion on orbital mechanics. A couple of poems are even included. I hope that the large variety included will provide some entertainment for all.

But as traffic suddenly comes to a screeching halt, a married couple on a simple trip to town realizes a silver van from Alberta is holding up their journey. Overwhelmed by the fact that she is going nowhere fast, the wife decides to seek revenge, in the most creative way possible.

A successful accountant for the Montreal mob until a police raid robbed him of his career, Texas Johnny is on a mission to spread the word of all things country and western, with a liberal intake of beer and humor of course.

When a small group of people reunite to discuss a land partnership, they learn truths about themselves and forge new relationships while discovering that dreams are different for everyone, that they have all changed, and that nothing is like it used to be.

Tales of Canadian Rurality presents a trio of short stories that provide a glimpse into rustic rural Canadian life and the authentic characters that populate its landscape.
