Toni BentleyJulie Kavanagh, a British dance journalist who trained as a dancer and the author of Secret Muses: The Life of Frederick Ashton, has written a superbly researched biography of Nureyev, 14 years after his death and nine years after publication of the one other significant biography, by the American writer Diane Solway. Solway's biography was subtitled "His Life." Kavanagh's, with the grandiosity of authorization by the two foundations that bear Nureyev's name, is subtitled "The Life." His life, the life: either way, it was an extraordinary one.
