Description
The Joffrey Ballet is a comprehensive history of the quintessential American dance troupe and a textured portrait of Robert Joffrey, the creative maverick who led and inspired it. Broadly researched, richly anecdotal, and elegantly written, The Joffrey Ballet probes the complex relationship that exists between a culture and its artists through the prism of this company's story.

"Remarkable for its warmth and vigor, and for its blending of candor and judiciousness". -- Jack Anderson, New York Times Book Review

"A milestone in dance writing. Few studies in the field will be able to match Sasha Anawalt's elegant style". -- Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times

"Anawalt transforms years of meticulous research into a cliffhanger of a history". -- Elizabeth Zimmer, dance editor, Village Voice

"Meticulously detailed, well-documented history, juiced with a little gossip here and there...(and) a valuable sweeping look at this all-important troupe". -- Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune Book Review

"(Anawalt's) approach is deeper and more satisfying than straightforward biography". -- Marcia B. Siegel, Village Voice
