Beschreibung

This novel opens on a battlefield: trudging back from the front through a ravaged and icy wasteland, their horses dying around them, their own hunger rendering them almost savage, the Russian soldiers are exhausted as they reach the city of Ufa, desperate for food and shelter. They find both, and then music and dance. And there, spinning unafraid among them, dancing for the soldiers and anyone else who'll watch him, is one small pale boy, Rudolf. This is Colum McCann's dancer: Rudolf, a prodigy at six years old, who became the greatest dancer of the century, who redefined dance, rewrote his own life, and died of AIDS before anyone knew he had it.

This is an extraordinary life transformed into extraordinary fiction by one of the most acclaimed writers of his generation. One kind of masculine grace is perfectly matched to another in Colum McCann's beautiful and daring new novel.

Colum McCann is the author of six novels and three collections of stories. His most recent novel
Apeirogon was longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize.
TransAtlantic was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013, and
Let the Great World Spin won the National Book Award, the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and was a
New York Times bestseller. His work has been published in forty languages and has received many international honours, including a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, election to the Irish arts academy and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the 2010 Best Foreign Novel Award in China and an Oscar nomination. He is the co-founder of the non-profit global story exchange organisation, Narrative 4, and he teaches at the MFA program in Hunter College. He was born in Dublin and lives in New York. colummccann.com

Ralph Fiennes superb picture of the early stages of Nurejews career(culminating in a thrilleresque escape from the clutches of his Soviet minders at the airport in Paris) made me browse my bookshelf in search of McCanns novel/biography to reread it for the umpteenth time. It is still an unflinchingy honest portrait of an excepional talent in difficult times. It is still on of the most marvellous books on artistic passion I have ever read. And it is stil my perfect excuse if anyone starts a discussion about artistic ego. He was talented. Ballet in the 20th centruy was transformed because of people like him. So if a touch of ego got in the was every now and then, does it really matter? This, for me is the gist of the book: you don't have to like me. But look at what I do.
