Reviews

Mesmerising ... enthralling ... atmospheric ... meticulous and intelligent ... Moore's descriptions of Nijinsky's eventual isolation from his sister, rejection by his wife, and how he remained locked in insanity for the rest of his life are unforgettable * Daily Telegraph *
Superb biography ... Moore recounts [Nijinsky's story] with scholarship, grace and imagination * Sunday Times *
His final curtain was cruel, and Moore lowers the darkness with great tenderness * Guardian *
Highly intelligent, lucidly presented and consistently absorbing...a clear and objective picture of a tragically wounded genius -- Rupert Christiansen * Literary Review *
Lucid prose...The colour and the pain of an extraordinary life come across vividly -- David Nice * BBC Music Magazine *
Highly readable and absorbing * The Lady *
Excellent * Times *
Despite the sad, upsetting nature of Nijinsky's story, Moore's enjoyable biography does a fine job of explaining not only who Nijinsky was, but - once you peel away the glitter - why he really mattered * Scotsman *
She never loses sight of why Nijinsky's art was so great. The result is a captivating biography * Financial Times *
