Geoffrey Holder is arguably one of the most recognized personalities in the theater world, with nearly 50 years in the United States as an award-winning dancer, choreographer, costume designer, director, actor, commercial pitchman (for the "uncola"), painter, and writer. New York Times dance critic Dunning has produced a loving, lavish tribute to this great artist, combining Holder's reminiscences of everyone from Josephine Baker to Helen Hayes with 250 illustrations of his work, 150 in full vibrant color. Those who know only Holder the actor will be pleasantly surprised to discover that he has a whole other career as a painter whose work has been honored with a Guggenheim Award. The high quality of the illustrations and the absence of any full-length Holder biography on the market makes this oversized book essential for all art, performing arts, and African American studies collections.
