Dominic Caruso's
Reading Room
ONLY YESTERDAYS   A stunning murder of a man and the death of a six year old boy catapult you into the world of Francesco “Cheech” Caruso.  Jaw dropping truth brings the story to a close. Only Yesterdays reveals the dichotomy of Francesco Caruso's passionate life, with his golden tenor voice, uncompromising love and hands blood stained from murder. The reader is struck with raw frankness contrasted against poetry from the heart. “Only Yesterdays” is as unpredictable as the wind - twisting and turning through the life of an immigrant, against money, power and the court system in 1927.   
THE SHORT WRITING WORLD OF DOMINIC CARUSO  is an accumulation of writings by Dominic over the last fifty-five years of his life. It has everything from poetry, prose, short stories,  notes, reflections and first chapters of existing and soon to be published books. It's an accumulation of writings that will make you laugh...or even cry. Every once in a while, you'll see an amusing translation and interpretation of history or current events as we know it.
WHERE WE LAND   If we survive birth, we all land somewhere. My landing was at 1579 Madison Ave, New York NY 10029 to the talented, gifted and aggressive Caruso clan. This book chronicles my life from birth to my childhood on Prospect Avenue New York NY, and the Bronx with my teenage years on Long Island during the 1950's and the birth of Rock & Roll. It continues until I reached a point when fate gave me a choice to make. My decade of Rock & Roll was about to end with the 60's and a new group of teenagers. I had to change with it, or get run over by infuences like the Beatles from across the pond and the changing sound of Rock & Roll. So, I had a choice to continue the same old same old...or change my ways. I was no longer a teenager. The choice/change was up to me....
