Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
The author of The Side of Brightness presents a fictional account of the life of Rudolf Nureyev, following his first ballet lessons under Anna Vasileva, his relationship with the ambitious Yulia, and his experiences with Venezuela hustler Victor. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.
"[A]n understated, intimate narrative....Balletomanes will love it...."
"[A] beautiful, floating novel....It's hard to tell what a reader unfamiliar with the outlines of Nureyev's life might make of DANCER. Much, deliberately, is left unsaid. Reduced to words, the dance evaporates--only passion and the personal can make it move again. McCann makes no mistake in this regard, not stopping even to explain the terms of classical ballet, because they really don't matter."
