BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: Nov. 1, 2000

"In one of her more controversial essays, 'Discussing the Undiscussable,' Croce declares, 'Theoretically, I am ready to go to anything once. If it moves, I'm interested; if it moves to music, I'm in love.' The library of anyone who shares this view is incomplete without her book."
This scintillating collection, comprising 109 of Croce's dance essays and reviews published in the New Yorker during the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, presents a riveting three-decade panorama of Amerca's love affair with the terpsichorean arts. Read full book review >
