While Neil Baldwin's biography captures the frenetic life of modern dance innovator Martha Graham (1894-1991), it's Gabrielle de Cuir who keeps listeners attentive. De Cuir's voice is delicious--round, mellow, and perfectly suited to Graham's journey of discovery. From Graham's childhood, when her father made her aware that "movement never lies," through her incredible career spanning 50 years, de Cuir smoothly guides us through Graham's stumbles and victories. Passionate and volatile, Graham insisted on perfection from others and never gave less than her all to her projects. De Cuir's delivery of specific, detailed description never becomes tedious. She makes Graham's connections to other dancers, composers, and famous performers of the day more than lists of artistic icons. De Cuir keeps this long audiobook fresh and inviting. S.J.H.
