Sutton's kinetic, meticulously choreographed biography reveals the forces of light and gravity that shaped the fiercely independent dancer's soaring forty-year career--and the delicate yet indelible mark she left on the dance world and beyond. Tina Sutton's biography of legendary prima ballerina Alicia Markova is an ardent and complex choreography of its own. Following Markova from her humble beginnings to the apogee of her career as a dancer, muse, and fashion icon, The Making of Markova is a compelling and wonderfully readable portrait of a fiercely independent artist who left an indelible mark on the world. --Amanda Foreman, New York Times bestselling author of Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire
