Andrew Steinmetz

Andrew Steinmetz’s novel, Eva’s Threepenny Theatre, won the City of Ottawa Book Award and was a finalist for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. He is also the author of the memoir Wardlife and two collections of poetry, Histories and Hurt Thyself. Steinmetz presents This Great Escape: The Case of Michael Paryla, which has been shortlisted for the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction and reconstructs the making of cinema classic The Great Escape. It is a poignant and moving testament to the complexity of human experience, a portrait of a family for whom acting was a matter of survival and proof that our most anonymous, uncredited and undocumented moments can brush against the zeitgeist of world history.
