Dancer by Colum McCann
Rudolf Nureyev was a dancing genius, a celebrity with a large ego, and a private man who would purposely let falsehoods about his life go unchallenged. Instead of trying to write another biography of him, Colum McCann has created a fictional account of Nureyev's life. Dancer captures the essence of Nureyev's life, if not the details, and chronicles the drama, tumult, obsession, and loneliness that can accompany genius and fame. This book has garnered high praise from almost all reviewers. The Spectator says of Dancer, "Colum McCann writes with a ferocious eloquence and a masterly sense of narrative."
