In this sublimely written collection of reflections on physical and social grace, the Pulitzer Prize-winning dance critic at the WASHINGTON POST reminds us of how film, dance, and sports stars can captivate us with their smooth, effortless movements, and how, with a little effort, all of us can behave with more kindness and consideration. Narrator Christina Delaine captures every phrasing nuance in the sweeping themes that make this audio so engaging. Her overly serious performance gives the recording an investigative tone, which for some listeners may seem out of sync with the author's artistic sensibilities. But it doesn't keep the audio from being a transformative listening experience--a reminder of what we might gain by paying more attention to grace in our art and, especially, our public discourse.
