A competitive fencer and successful writer, Joseph Lunievicz brilliantly mixed his two worlds for his debut historical novel, titled, Open Wounds.
Written for young adults, 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.
Joseph, and I will be discussing about his life’s journey and his approach to making a positive difference through his story telling.
