Nureyev Book – Too Much Sex (Or Not Enough?)

“I have a dance colleague who complains that there’s too much about sex in this book, and another who says that there isn’t enough, soon enough. Sex, surely, is central, because the body is central, onstage and off-. It isn’t, after all, Nureyev’s mind that interests us so much, or even, possibly, his mind that interested him so much. For Nureyev was one of those rare equal-opportunity crushes, up close and in the theater, where he was galvanic.”
