Summary:
"Julia Lindqvist, a woman unhappily married to a famous Swedish playwright, leaves her husband to begin a passionate affair with a female tailor named Eve. The pair run away and settle in the more liberal haven of Vienna, where they fall in love, navigate the challenges of their new-found independence, and find community in the city's bohemian Jewish quarter. But Julia's yearning for a child throws their fragile happiness into chaos. Meanwhile, Ada Bauer's wealthy industrialist family have sent her to Dr. Freud in the hope that he can cure her mutism - and do so without a scandal. But help will son come for Ada from an unexpected place, changing many lives irrevocably. Set in Vienna from 1910 to 1946, All of You Every Single One is an atmospheric, original, and deeply moving novel about family, freedom, and how true love might survive impossible odds. Through the lives of her queer characters, and against the changing backdrop of one of the greatest cities of the age, Beatrice Hitchman creates an intensely poignant portrait of life and love on the fringes of history." -- jacket flap.
