NUREYEV: An Autobiography with Pictures by Rudolph Nureyev

NUREYEV: An Autobiography with Pictures

Email this review


Two years ago the Kirov ballet dancer Rudolph Nureyev leapt like a blue bird from the arms of Red musclemen; now at 24 in a sort of ""fan mag"" autobiography, he tells the reasons behind that headline-making ""flight to the West"". Filled with technicolored ideals, a passion for la danse, the Hamletesque aura and photos from famed Richard Avedon, who usually does Audrey Hepburn, the book should certainly bowl over the young balletomane and the artsy-craftsy set. Anyone else had better just twist.
