Tales By Tom, the podcast on Thomas M. Cagley Sr.’s fiction begins
with the first two chapters of my novella Even the Day of My
Wedding. A synopsis of the story is as follows: Washed ashore
at a Displaced Persons camp after the Holocaust by separate rivers
of pain, Morris and Dita fell in love, made plans to marry, but
decided to wait until both could come to America. She came first
under the orphan quota in 1947, he came two years later. For
reasons beyond their control, they did not connect in New York
City, and each went their separate way. The novella begins with
Morris telling his story of his Holocaust experiences to a complete
stranger almost 40 years later. When he does, a new light is shed
on this old relationship, and the reader finds out, if like an
Italian fresco covered in the dust of ages, what’s old can ever be
made new again.
