The Unmaking of a Dancer
An Unconventional Life
Joan Brady / 1982
Harper & Row / ASIN: B005DFHU1Y
Another of the "ballet-life-as-cruel-and-unusual-punishment"
books, but don't think I pass any of them off lightly. Each
of these stories reminds us that dance, with its deceptive
look of beauty and effortlessness, is an unbelievably tough,
jealous, deceptive, relentless and ultimately true master.
