Synopsis: . with dw, 1990, 314pp

From Publishers Weekly: A heroine of American dance, choreographer de Mille in her 12th book proves expert at telling tales of other legendary folk, famous or obscure, from her household cook ("she existed like a ghost, a very fat one, in the back room") to ethereal English ballerina Alicia Markova ("a rebuke to everything gross in the world"). The volume is divided into four parts, "Artists," "Impresarios," "The de Milles" and "Intimates," each full of delicious, sometimes ruthless observations. Especially good at reckoning with the destructive forces that can undo us, de Mille is a realist whose sentences roll with the pugnacious rhythms of particular truths: Isadora Duncan was an "emotional commando"; ballet financier Marquis de Cuevas's bedroom had "the air of a crypt made cozy with superstition." De Mille is also a wit willing to take on herself. She has an acute eye, an exceptional ear for language; she changed the course of American dance and musical theater and here performs the inestimable service of preserving their vital signs.
