About This Book
Taking his inspiration from biographical facts, novelist Colum McCann tells the
erotically charged story of the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev through the cast
of those who knew him: there is Anna Vasileva, Rudi's first ballet teacher, who
rescues her protege from the stunted life of his provincial town; Yulia, whose
sexual and artistic ambitions are thwarted by her Soviet-sanctioned marriage;
and Victor, the Venezuelan street hustler, who reveals the lurid underside of
the gay celebrity set. Spanning four decades and many worlds, from the horrors
of the Second World War to the wild abandon of New York in the eighties, Dancer
is peopled by a large cast of characters, obscure and famous: doormen and
shoemakers, nurses and translators, Margot Fonteyn, Eric Bruhn and John Lennon.
And at the heart of the spectacle stands the artist himself, willful, lustful,
and driven by a never-to-be-met need for perfection.
