Written by the gifted author, editor, and dance critic Robert Gottlieb, George Balanchine describes the life and art of the celebrated, revolutionary ballet choreographer. Here is a necessary and singular look at the life of one of the great figures of the 20th Century: the dynamic Balanchine, founder of The New York City Ballet, collaborator of Stravinsky, and inspiration to countless fans over the course of his long and storied career. George Balanchine is another engaging entry in the HarperCollins’ “Eminent Lives” series of biographies by distinguished authors on canonical figures.
The former editor in chief of Simon & Schuster, Alfred A. Knopf, andThe New Yorker, Robert Gottlieb was on the board of directors of the New York City Ballet for many years. He writes literary criticism for theNew York Review of Books, theNew York Times Book Review, andThe New Yorker, and is the dance critic for theNew York Observer.
