A Bad Man

454 pages7 hours


A black market dealer must reconcile his lifetime of sins as he faces hard time in prison

A born salesman, Leo Feldman can peddle anything from clothing and appliances to prostitutes, guns, and drugs. Although guilty of myriad crimes, Feldman is sentenced to prison as the result of a clerical error that charged him with a crime he did not commit. Now, completely vulnerable to the inmates who surround him—and to the stern Warden Fisher—Feldman must come to terms with what it means to be jailed not for his crimes, but for his character.   Wry and insightful, A Bad Man is an engrossing story of an antihero’s journey through the twisted world of an unforgiving penal system.   This ebook features rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate and from the Stanley Elkin archives at Washington University in St. Louis.
