Novelist Colum McCann's fictional biography of Rudolf Nureyev takes advantage of this unusual form to explore the life and times of perhaps the greatest dancer in history. The talented readers, each with care and emotion, bring multiple points of view to life. Nureyev creates his dancer's body through raw ambition and sheer strength of will. He pays the price; the list of ailments and stress-related injuries is almost too painful to hear, but with the work comes money, celebrity, and eventually acceptance. Readers of DANCER will be transported to a strange, profane, and ultimately fulfilling universe. This is one not to be missed. R.O.
