The first major biography for forty years tells the tragic story of ballet's great revolutionary, Nijinsky - now in paperback.
Mesmerising ... enthralling ... atmospheric ... meticulous and intelligent ... Moore's descriptions of Nijinsky's eventual isolation from his sister, rejection by his wife, and how he remained locked in insanity for the rest of his life are unforgettable
Superb biography ... Moore recounts [Nijinsky's story] with scholarship, grace and imagination
His final curtain was cruel, and Moore lowers the darkness with great tenderness
Highly intelligent, lucidly presented and consistently absorbing...a clear and objective picture of a tragically wounded genius
Lucid prose...The colour and the pain of an extraordinary life come across vividly
