A Great Insight into the Legend who was Nureyev
on 3 September 2017
This is a well researched and writen biography on one of the world's greatest ballet dancers. I have to be honest I am not a ballet fan, but thought it might be interesting to know more about the man who defected from the USSR to the West in 1961.
Sometimes the book was heavy going, especially if like me you are not knowledgeable in ballet and works of some of the greatest stars in this field.
Unfortunately, I did not grow to like the man, as it would appear he was rather rude and obnoxious in life and treated people with real contempt. This continued right up to his death in 1993 at the relatively young age of 54.
