New ballet novel?

Recommended Posts

I was browsing in Tower Books and noticed a new fiction title, "Flight of the Swan," by Rosario Ferré, with whose work I am unfamiliar. It concerns a Russian ballerina who finds herself stranded, because of political complications, in the Puerto Rico of 1917. I am knee deep in unread titles at home and didn't purchase it, but I'd be interested to know if anyone has read it. (I also thought that a new addition to the not exactly extensive list of novels dealing with ballet should be noted for its own sake.)

There are several reviews of it on Amazon.com (just type in "flight of the swan" in the search box) - there seem to be conflicting opinions. One review describes it as lacklustre and bland! Its a bit pricey at the moment for me ...

There's also a book profiled in this month's Vanity Fair called "White Swan, Black Swan" and I forget the author's name but she used to be a dancer.
