4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By John H. Turner on September 6, 2013
Format: Paperback
Rather than a fully-fledged autobiography, the world's greatest choreographer sets out to talk directly to us about where he found himself in his old age and part of how he got there. He wasn't at all happy, for various thoroughly understandable reasons, and he tells us so. His memory is about as reliable as any other old person's and he doesn't tell us what we'd dearly love to know about his works because he's not writing about them. Doubtless, there's ego involved, but the fact that he was increasingly considered old hat is undeniable. This wasn't justified, but when did that ever make a difference. There's a print of him aged 15 with a monkey, which hangs in pride of place on one of my living room walls. I got it from [...] if you are interested. About this he talks. So this book is a breath of fresh air on many counts.
