Beschreibung

Stunning, bestselling novel based on the real life of Rudolf Nureyev from an acclaimed author.

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 was born in Dublin in 1965. His fiction has won numerous international awards including the Rooney Prize, the Ireland Fund of Monaco Princess Grace Memorial Award, a Pushcart Prize, and Esquire magazine's Writer of the Year award in 2003. In 2005 he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Short Film. He was recently inducted into the Hennessy Hall of Fame in Dublin. His work has been published in twenty-six languages. He has travelled widely and is based in New York, where he lives with his wife and children.

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.
