The Master's Muse

Click for availability and more information The Master's Muse, by Varley O'Connor
This exquisitely written novel tells the story, in memoir form, of the legendary dancer Tanaquil Le Clerq, George Balanchine's last wife and the inspiration for many of his most noted works. Her career was cut short by polio at 27, which deepened their marriage in unexpected ways as she reinvented her life with style, grace and humor. By turns richly emotional, sharply observant, and witty, this is simply the best book I've read all year.
