really liked it
Read in June, 2008

The writing is a bit ridiculous, but I suppose one reads a biography for its subject and not the writing...? I do love Nureyev and after seven hundred pages I feel I know probably too much about him. I'd also say that approximately two hundred of those pages are basically him slowly dying and, in the end, its a relief just to be finished.

Side note: reading this book did [inspire?] a fantastic dream in which 'Rudik' and I are lounging on a couch and Jackie-O approaches us, hugs me and tells me how cool she thinks I am. Probably super pathetic and gay but I will always cherish it...
