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.

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.
