KIRKUS REVIEW

For balletomanes, this is doubtless a fascinating account of a leading force in the arts, for these are the memoirs of the prima ballerina assoluta of the Imperial Russian ballet. Her childhood, her years of ballets, reviews, ovations, admirers, backstage quarrels, her life among the talented and nobility are recorded with an odd schoolgirl quality.
