The Dancer Who Will Be Never Forgotten
This book is perhaps the most comprehensive account of Rudolf Nureyev's life that has ever been published. It is based on a very thorough, scholarly research and is a real pleasure to read. Most other books about Nureyev lack the depth and impartiality. In contrast to them, this book is much more profound and rich in details. For example, most other books about Nureyev hardly mention the fact that he was an ethnic Tatar. Dianne Solway's book, in contrast, not only mentions this fact but devotes much attention to it. The roots of Rudolf Nureyev's talent are in his cultural background, in the musical traditions of the Tatar people. Despite its volume, the book reads very fast and leaves the reader with a desire to learn more about the most talented dancer of the 20th century.Was this review helpful?
