Apollo’s Angels

Newly out in paperback, Jennifer Homans’ groundbreaking history of ballet celebrates the beauty of the art form and the brilliance of its most accomplished practitioners. The author, dance critic for The New Republic and a former professional dancer, combines archival research with interviews that took her from Moscow to Manhattan. Gloriously illustrated with paintings and photography, this is a literary performance as rewarding for casual readers as it is for devoted balletomanes.
