  1. I hope people will ask for the reprint - I would surely buy it!
  2. I ran across a picture of Tanaquil Le Clercq on Instagram, and went down that rabbit hole and ran into a picture posted by Holly Brubach, in which she stated she was a friend of Tanny's and was starting to write her memoir. I found her homepage and saw this: "I am currently working on a biography of Tanaquil Le Clercq, a ballerina for the New York City Ballet and George Balanchine’s last wife." I am so looking forward to this! More here: http://www.hollybrubach.com/news/
  3. I haven't bought this yet, but it has one bad review on Amazon. Any other thoughts from those who have/are reading it? Thanks!
  4. Does anyone know anything about this upcoming biography of Patricia Wilde? It's being released in a few days.
  5. Dirac, I enjoyed the book. It has piqued my interest in that period of ballet, so now I'm reading Suzanne Farrell's autobiography and have finished Allegra Kent's. I did the see the documentary - watched 2x as a matter of fact. Loved it! I do wish there was more information available about Le Clercq.
  6. I'm new to this forum and this book inspired my interest in Tanaquil Le Clercq. I had never heard of her, but saw this book as a "librarian's favorite" at my library so checked it out. It seems to be very controversial on this forum, but at the very least it seems to have brought about a renewed interest in this spectacular ballerina. So in this regard, I would say the book has had a positive effect.
