New York City Ballet fans know who Jenifer Ringer is. She is the very recently retired NYCB principal dancer who once attracted inflammatory headlines just as this: "Is This Ballerina Really Too Overweight to Play the Super Plum Fairy?" In this revelatory autobiography, Ringer writes candidly about her two decades with the company, including her dismissal and return; the world of ballet; her battles with anorexia and bingeing; the stabilizing power of faith and her eventual marriage to a fellow NYCB dancer. Primed to be the most popular ballet memoir since Gelsey Kirkland's 1986 Dancing on My Grave.
