It saddens me when readers rate a memoir based on their perceptions of an author s choices and strugglesDancing on My Grave chronicles Kirkland s journey to prima ballerina status while battling multiple addictions and bulimia As you muddle through some of the cringe worthy details of her relationship with Mikhail Baryishnikov you ll probably find some of the passages in the book difficult to digestStill Kirkland is brave and achingly honest in this memoir I applaud Kirkland for her eyes wide open portrayal of the expectations and demands placed on professional dancers If you ve ever seen Kirkland dance whether live or on film you already know that she s talented strong and extremely gifted Just once I would love to see Kirkland s memoir rated for the searing candid account that it is instead of read reviewers commentary on the mistakes she made along the way

The cover claims this starts as a fairy tale That is untrueNonetheless the first 56 of the book were fascinating for one entirely uninitiated to ballet Gelsey Kirkland s explorations uestions insistence on pursuing art for art s sake in the form of dramatic dance gave me I think previously unknown insight into the expressiveness and creativity of movementHer relationship with Mikhail Baryshnikov freuently made me want to scream His two dimensionality outside the ballet and her dependence on him were excruciating But he redeemed himself somewhat in his however misguided attempts at a kind of stand offish help and support during her battles with drug addiction Maybe in a limited way he loved herAfter 56 of the book it becomes nightmarish in a drug induced haze I suppose there isn t much else she can say for herself in the early 80 s drugs prevent that kind of insight and analysis that had previously characterized her writing and she could only write that she socialized with those who supported her habit missed lots of appointments and gave performances not worthy of the skill that she had slaved to develop but which were often critically acclaimedFortunately she did ultimately work through her addiction by finding what appears to have been one of the first mutually supportive and creatively and spiritually matched relationships she had with a man in her life It sounds as though she is turned to learning up a storm of classical greats and beginning to share her knowledge with up and coming dancers finding a way of healthfully nurturing and being nurtured Wikipedia says she s doing well

Characters Dancing on My Grave Free download ☆ Dancing on My Grave 102 Dary partnership with Mikhail Baryshnikov her agonizing descent into drugs and her struggles to rise agai. I really lost patience with this book It was at least 100 pages too long and seemed to be written too soon before any of the wounds had healed She wrote with a chip on her shoulder which failed to evoke any pity from me and I came away without a solid understanding of why she put herself through all of that in order to dance Did she love it If you watch videos of her dancing it s incredible but all you see in this book is the pain and the hurt feelings and a lot of poor me Plus are we really supposed to believe that she uit drugs cold turkey all on her own This book is gossipy and melodramatic and largely ugly everything that Suzanne Farrell s book is not Read hers or Toni Bentley s instead they show that it s possible to write about the world of ballet which is admittedly a tough world to live in graciously and elegantly This book has neither of those ualities
