    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 protege 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.

    Chrissie says: "Amazing prose and narration"
    "Depressing"
    Overall

    This book left me with a haunting woven with shades of depression for days. He was about 10 years before my time, his fame was fading as Baryshnikov was peaking. So, I was happy to find some film of his dancing on u-tube. Amazing dancer but depressing life (as seen through this book). The narration was great but the story was difficult to listen to.

    Nick Gentry is reputed to be the most skillful lover in all England. Known for solving delicate situations, he is hired to seek out Miss Charlotte Howard. He believes his mission will be easily accomplished – but that was before he met the lady in question. For instead of a willful female, he discovers one in desperate circumstances, hiding from a man who would destroy her very soul. So Nick shockingly offers her a very different kind of proposition – one he has never offered before.He asks her to be his bride.

    Amazon Customer says: "Creepy Narrator.... Almost Ruined the book for me."
    "Wow! My favorite."
