"This book offers terrific insights on countless personalities, including George Balanchine, Lincoln Kirstein, Jerome Robbins, Lucia Chase, Nora Kaye, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Rudolf Nureyev, Judith Jamison, and Patrick Dupond. As dancer, teacher, and impresario, Paul Szilard met many colorful as well as bitchy characters, all of whom he describes in humorous detail...The impresario reveals the numerous aspects of the immensely talented but troubled Alvin Ailey...Here is a book so full of blunt comments, vast humor, and pathos that it isn't just for the dance world alone. Even the layman will garner knowledge, drama, and entertainment from it." -Jennie Schulman, Back Stage "...a must for balletomanes and dance historians." -Publishers Weekly
