"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Master's Muse
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
By Varley O’Connor
Publication Date: May 8
In the tradition of Loving Frank and The Paris Wife comes an unforgettable novel based on the life of George Balanchine’s fifth wife, a star ballerina whose career was cut short after she contracted polio at 26. Once author Varley O’Connor, the daughter of a polio survivor, came across the facts about Tanaquil (Tanny) Le Clercq, she could not get the story out of her mind. O’Connor dug deeper, reading countless articles and interviews, and watching hundreds of hours of documentaries and New York City Ballet footage to capture Le Clercq’s essence. The result is an evocative, compelling portrayal of the 17-year marriage between George Balanchine—the ballet master credited with creating an American style of dance—and his final wife.
