Product Details


“Julie Kavanagh distills the fabulous spirit of Nureyev, the ballet world’s first pop icon.”
Vanity Fair

“Ferociously concrete, ambitious, profligate, shocking and soaring. . . . Nureyev is easily the best biography of the year.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“The definitive biography of ballet’s greatest star whose ego was as supersized as his talent.”
—Tina Brown

“A treasure trove for those intrigued by Nureyev the dancer, filled with thoughtful reflections on his technique, details of his roles, and of his encounters with ballet greats.”
Seattle Times

“Kavanagh chronicles [Nureyev] with even-mindedness and original research and a mastery of detail. . . . And that is what we get: not a tell-all, but a tell-everything.”
The New York Observer
