This autobiography of one of ballet's most talented stars tells Robert La Fosse's story from his beginning as a corps dancer in 1977, through his eight-year rise as Mikhail Baryshnikov's protege, to his present position with the New York City Ballet

La Fosse presents us with another ballet-world expose. Catapulted to an early success with American Ballet Theatre (ABT) as a protege of Baryshnikov, La Fosse is frank but not graphic about both his early drug use and his gay lifestyle. In 1985, personal doubts caused him to resign from ABT to "find himself" and do choreography, but he shortly joined the New York City Ballet. La Fosse shows the most insight when he discusses his fellow dancers, the differences between the two companies, and the difficulties of partnering various ballerinas. Otherwise, his prose is adolescent in tone. Marcia L. Perry, Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield, Mass.
