Bent Toward Justice: A Novel Inspired by True Stories by Steven R. Feldman

$ 20.00

A unifying narrative for divided times, BENT TOWARD JUSTICE tells the story of Murray Schwartzman, a Polish Jew who survived the Holocaust and escaped to America. But while Schwartzman may have found respite from external conflict in his peaceful and supportive American Jewish community, he faces a new internal upheaval. An encounter with an apparently anti-Semitic doctor forces Schwartzman to confront his beliefs about Palestinians being the enemy of the Jewish people.


Martin Luther King Jr. believed the moral arc of the universe bends toward justice. BENT TOWARD JUSTICE embodies that theme with a story about a morally passionate man who begins to question his beliefs, leading him to discover he is guilty of the kind of prejudice that he so fervently despised. This story examines what it means to see people as the "other"; it challenges the reader to see past our biases and find our shared humanity.

Dr. Steve Feldman, a distinguished professor of Dermatology, Pathology, and Public Health Sciences, has made significant strides in the medical field, particularly as the Director of the Psoriasis Treatment Center at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C. He has both his M.D. and Ph.D. from Duke University, followed by his dermatology residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his dermatopathology residency at the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston. Feldman's leadership extends to the Center for Dermatology Research, where he spearheads health services research aimed at enhancing patient care for skin diseases, with a special focus on psoriasis, a chronic condition that he passionately works to alleviate for patients.
