Maya Plisetskaya book

Recommended Posts

Does anyone who lives outside the US (or inside) have any information about the western European or US translation of Maya Plisetskaya's autobiography "I, Maya Plisetskaya." I speak a little Russian, but not well enough to read it (it's about 500 pages). I have seen the book selling in Russian book stores in San Francisco, and in online Russian bookstores like kniga.com. A russian teacher of mine read the book and says its incredible and was a huge best seller in Russia. It's a real tell-all about soviet ballet from the late 40's to the present. She goes into all the conflicts at the Bolshoi, political interference and even anti-semitism towards Jewish dancers. I would love to read it. Does anyone know if it's been published in France or England.

Ralph, I don't think it has been. You might go on Amazon (link at top of page) and do a search. You might also try dance books in England. I don't have that URL off the top of my head, but doing a search for Dance Books should turn it up.

It does sound juicy! Perhaps some enterprising press will translate it. I think their would be a readership for it in America.
