Open Wounds Paperback and ebook Editions
After a loooong wait and lots of slips and falls along the way, OPEN WOUNDS is coming out this November 18th in paperback and Kindle e-book formats!
PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY STARRED REVIEW – “Lunievicz’s impressive debut novel is a dark, often brutal story, balancing some of the meanest villains in recent memory with a beautifully portrayed historical New York and a movie-obsessed boy determined to overcome the hand life has dealt him…Lunievicz paints a grim picture of Depression-era New York: anti-Semitism, violence, and poverty (an early eviction scene stands out) dominate the storytelling, yet bright spots like Cid’s love of cinema are painted with equal brilliance and realism.”
Open Wounds is the emotional coming-of-age tale of Cedric “Cid Wymann” in New York City during the 1930s and 1940s after a distant relative takes him from the orphanage. “Lefty”—a shell-shocked survivor of the First World War—offers Cid the only family love he’s ever known, and helps the 13-year-old come to terms with the violent blood-legacy of his abusive father and anti-Semitic grandmother by teaching him the art of combat with a sword.
