Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Szilard's memoir provides an interesting look into the world of dance of recent decades. It was co-authored by Howard Kaplan, who has also collaborated on books with Judith Jamison and with Peter Martins. Coverage includes Szilard's early years in Budapest, his dance studies in Paris before WWII, his early years in the U.S., four years stranded in the Philippines during the Japanese occupation, his return to the U.S. in 1945 and the decades which followed in which Szilard became an integral part of the contemporary dance world. The text includes an introduction by Clive Barnes, a foreword by Judith Jamison, and 32 pages of b&w photographs from Szilard's private collection.

Synopsis:

This book offers terrific insights on countless personalities, including George Balanchine, Lincoln Kirstein, Jerome Robbins, Lucia Chase, Nora Kaye, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Rudolf Nureyev, Judith Jamison, and Patrick Dupond. As dancer, teacher, and impresario, Paul Szilard met many colorful as well as bitchy characters, all of whom he describes in humorous detail...The impresario reveals the numerous aspects of the immensely talented but troubled Alvin Ailey...Here is a book so full of blunt comments, vast humor, and pathos that it isn't just for the dance world alone. Even the layman will garner knowledge, drama, and entertainment from it. -Jennie Schulman, Back Stage ...a must for balletomanes and dance historians. -Publishers Weekly
