Harper & Row / ASIN: B005DFHU1Y (1982)
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.
