Editorial Reviews

Choice
This treasure of a volume brilliantly records the luminosity and dramatic power of one of the finest performer-choreographers of the 20th century in 13 sparkling, readable, unique chapters....Dunbar, who also contributes the warmly personal final chapter, has created a masterful work that fills the void of information between the present and 1942, when Limon's own writings concluded.
