KIRKUS REVIEW

In collaboration with D. Lyman, Anatole Bourman, close personal friend of the dancer, Nijinsky, tells his version of the story. The return of the Monte Carlo Ballet should make this a good follow up on the brilliantly successful life of Nijinsky by his wife. It is amazingly fresh and new material, filling in the picture with warm, intimate, anecdotal sketches, which at some points contradict, in others substantiate the previous pictures of the strange, gifted creature. This is fascinating reading to anyone interested in either the man or the ballet. Tie in with other titles.
