Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The author was a ballerina and it shows in the love of her subject and her art. She has also written a couple of novels and that style shines through too. A lovely book.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Margot Fonteyn by Meredith Daneman

This is the biography of the much-loved dancer, Margot Fonteyn, generally considered to be the best British ballerina of her generation. She was one of the rare artists whose name means as much to the ordinary man and woman as to devotees of their particular art.

Reviews

Danemanas Margot Fonteyn has captured what few know: the heartbreak behind the heroine... the definitive book on this icon. (Toni Bentley, The New York Times Book Review )
