    Story
    (700)

    From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

    Overall

    This is the 5th Bryce Courtenay book that I've read. My only critism is that the book ended and I won't spend more time with "Brother Fish" and Jimmy. I felt the same about all the others too. His writing is magical and the stories and characters beautiful. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book.

    Story

    This is the true story of how one moment in time, by the thinnest thread of a chance, changed the course of a small boy's life in ways that are beyond description. One day he would dance with some of the greatest ballet companies of the world. One day he would be a friend to a president and first lady, movie stars, and the most influential people in America. One day he would become a star: Mao's last dancer, and the darling of the West.

    Story

    This autobiography about Li Cunxin's life is much more than a story about an incredible ballet dancer. Life as a peasant under Mao and the propaganda about the Eastern world is simply unbelievable. You don't have to know anything about ballet or to even be interested in ballet to enjoy this beautiful story. It was simple yet powerful.
