Stuart Kelter interviews Helen Epstein, an acclaimed writer of memoir, journalism, and biography. In her career as a journalist she interviewed such legendary musicians as Vladimir Horowitz, Leonard Bernstein and Yo-Yo Ma. She is the author of three books about the transmission of intergenerational trauma. The first, Children of the Holocaust: Conversations with Sons and Daughters of Survivors was originally published in 1979; the second, Where She Came From: A Daughter's Search for her Mother's History, in 1999; and the third, The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma, in 2018. All three books were named New York Times Notable Books of the Year and represent a forty year process of self discovery.
