"New York Times Book Review" 1992 Notable Book of the Year

About the Author

Edward Villella is America's most celebrated male dancer, associated with many of the greatest roles in the New York City Ballet repertory.

Larry Kaplan is a frequent contributor to Ballet Review and has written in Vanity Fair and The New Yorker.


Dancer Villella's frank, earthy autobiography also offers a portrait of his mentor, the choreographer George Balanchine. Photos. (Feb.)

"Villella appears as his immensely talented, intelligent, self-absorbed, and opinionated self: a clear-eyed account of a most remarkable career in a remarkable time."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A welcome addition to Balanchine chronicles. Frank, fair, earthy, direct . . . A true prodigal, Villella emerges triumphant from Balanchine's unique academy of hard knocks."
--Publishers Weekly
