The Author

Macdonald Carey
Macdonald Carey (1913-1994) is best known as Dr. Tom Horton in Days of Our Lives and for his work in over 60 films and several Broadway plays. He wrote poetry most of his life, and his first collection of poems, A Day in the Life, was published in 1982 by Coward McCann.


These poems . . . reveal a gentle irony that hints at the pain and paradox of the real world. The poems all have an astonishing sanity and good nature to them, and perhaps this is because they are written by a man who has worked long and well in his chosen field, has suffered deeply in his own life, and as William Faulkner once called for in all men, has prevailed.

William Packard, New York Quarterly
