Reviews

'The theme of towering celebrity and its attendant vacuity is very well done.'
Chris Power, THE TIMES
McCann's remarkable novel...... McCann's prose - nimble, lyrical and wispy - does full justice to the tragic story of a dancer who was the glory of his generation
THE SUNDAY TIMES
'it's a strikingly original one (book), and as apparently effortless as one of Fonteyn's pirouettes or Nureyev's leaps into space.
Arminta Wallace, THE IRISH TIMES
a truly extraordinary novel
FAST FORWARD
'Whether describing the Russian stepppe or New York's bathhouses, McCann's versatility is breathtaking.'
Elena Seymenliyska, THE GUARDIAN
'a mesmerising novel'
THE OBSERVER
'DANCER overflows with vibrant detail and evocative description.....McCann's books has a tremendous amount of life and energy.'
THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
McCann has achieved a tour de force in his re-imagined life of Rudolf Nureyev..... McCann spins a verbal rhapsody out of Nureyev's passions and longings, by turns soulful, flamboyant, in your face.
Brian Hennigan, THE HERALD
this is a brilliant portrait of an artist who could soar heavenwards on clay feet.
SUNDAY INDEPENDENT
McCann's fictionalised biography of ballet legend Rudolf Nureyev met with wide critical acclaim on its January publication and its availability in paperback will open up this remarkable story to a new audience'
