Product description

Review

"Julie Kavanagh distills the fabulous spirit of Nureyev, the ballet world's first pop icon."
--Vanity Fair

"Ferociously concrete, ambitious, profligate, shocking and soaring. . . . Nureyev is easily the best biography of the year."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"The definitive biography of ballet's greatest star whose ego was as supersized as his talent."
--Tina Brown

"A treasure trove for those intrigued by Nureyev the dancer, filled with thoughtful reflections on his technique, details of his roles, and of his encounters with ballet greats."
--Seattle Times

"Kavanagh chronicles [Nureyev] with even-mindedness and original research and a mastery of detail. . . . And that is what we get: not a tell-all, but a tell-everything."
--The New York Observer
