A Single Yesterday

By Rich Stachura All Rights Reserved ©

Drama / Adventure

Blurb

Dire circumstances lead the stories of two unsuspecting men to become entwined and embark on a journey together through Depression Era America. Chased by the demons of their past, the unlikely pair traverse less enlightened parts of the land, navigating racial tensions and prejudice as they do so. A giant and a dwarf chasing pipe dreams in a world they don't belong in; disenfranchised and rejected by all, will they be able to overcome the vices of a cruel time and prosper?

Dedication

I heard the Grateful Dead on the radio the other day. Bob Weir was singing Me and Bobby McGee, and the song took me back to Pittsburgh 1990. Crosby, Stills and Nash opened for them at the concert. There wasn’t a single cloud in the sky and the entire day was, for lack of better words, perfect.

We shared so many great times together, but that particular day I think of often and I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s because I can relate to the song’s lyrics “and I’d trade all of my tomorrows for a single yesterday.”

I miss you. You always had that knack for telling a story and making me laugh. I thank you for that. Now, it’s my turn to tell a story; a different kind of story, and I dedicate it to you. Rest in peace, Mickey, my dear friend.
