Eva and Eve maps a wide arc, pulling a Jewish family’s past in wartime Vienna into the present era with vivid and dramatic detail. The story of political repression, terror and dissolution; then arrival and retrieval in a new country, is full of astonishing and unlikely twists of fate, showing again that individual destiny may be the greatest mystery of all. Metz’s journey to recover the past offers a model for connection and self-understanding – as well as a testament to the strengths of an America that is just and fair to all.”

– Dani Shapiro, author of Inheritance, A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love

Thank you for presenting your book at Hadassah’s Bagels & Books.

“Julie’s presentation of her book, Eva & Eve was inspirational for all who attended. The graphic descriptions of her mother’s hidden past in Nazi-occupied Vienna were engaging and left us wanting to know more. The tension of the political and terrifying period in history was almost palpable. Julie’s thirst to uncover her mother’s childhood has helped us understand war, fear, and resilience. Julie presented her personal and historical memoir with grace, knowledge, and hope. We look forward to her next work of art.”
