Amanda Earl on Eva's Threepenny Theatre

Ottawa writer and blogger Amanda Earl responds to reading Eva's Threepenny Theatre in blog-print, here. Earl describes the structure of the book well:
The author/narrator conducts a series of interviews with Eva and also receives letters and has conversations with other members of the family and those close to her; this means that there are several layers of reporting in the book: Eva’s words as she tells them, her words as he reports them from the tape recorder he is using and the words of others who tell the author/narrator about Eva. There is also the mingling of Steinmetz's own life in the book.
