From the Inside Flap
Novelist, fashion historian, and award-winning cultural reporter for Vanity Fair, Laura Jacobs ranges far and plays deep. It is as a dance critic, however, that she stands tallest. From her observation deck at the New Criterion, surveying dance over the arc of a decade that bridges two millennia, Jacobs has forged her own poetics of response. Her book does the art of dance and the art of criticism equal glory.
