Beschreibung

Novelist Colum McCann's Dancer is the erotically charged story of the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev as told through the cast of those who knew him.

There is Anna Vasileva, Rudi's first ballet teacher, who rescues her protégé from the stunted life of his provincial town; Yulia, whose sexual and artistic ambitions are thwarted by her Soviet-sanctioned marriage; and Victor, the Venezuelan street hustler, who reveals the lurid underside of the gay celebrity set.

Spanning four decades and many worlds, from the horrors of the Second World War to the wild abandon of New York in the eighties, Dancer is peopled by a large cast of characters, obscure and famous: doormen and shoemakers, nurses and translators, Margot Fonteyn, Eric Bruhn and John Lennon. And at the heart of the spectacle stands the artist himself, willful, lustful, and driven by a never-to-be-met need for perfection.

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.
