Publisher Comments:

In her memoir Iranian-born Nesta Ramazani beautifully portrays her love of Persian and Western music, poetry, and dance. Yet as a young girl, translating this love into practice seemed an insurmountable task until an American woman pioneered the establishment of the first indigenous Iranian ballet company. As a member of this troupe, the author violated convention, performing first in her native land and then traveling abroad to exhibit this beautiful synthesis of Persian/Western forms to foreign audiences.<P>The significance of this work transcends an autobiography penned by an Iranian woman — still a taboo in traditional Iranian society — it is a unique microcosm of today's universal quest for a dialogue among civilizations.

Book News Annotation:

Ramazani was born in England in 1932 to English parents, but grew up in Iran and studied ballet in Tehran with a White Russian emigrant who had fled the Russian Revolution during the modernization period under the Shah. She remembers her life there and later in the US, where she now teaches and writes. She does not provide an index.
