From Tobi Tobias's review:

Quote:
The fashion in biography today calls for exorbitant length and the revelation-—in the interests of truth, shock value, or both-—of what used to be called a person's private life.
And Toni Bentley's review provides such revelation, to the extent that I feel there's not even a need to read the book.

A review by Christine Temin in the Boston Globe:
Ballet's brilliant Queen Margot - Biography gives details their due
Quote:
Daneman digs beneath the facade of the woman whose blossoming as an artist corresponded to the blossoming of classical dance in England, with the determined figure of Ninette de Valois transforming the Vic-Wells Ballet into the Sadler's Wells company and finally, triumphantly, into the Royal Ballet. Daneman writes as an insider, a graduate of London's Royal Ballet School, and now a novelist.

Glimpses of a Dancer's Foibles as Well as Her Art

By JENNIFER DUNNING
NY Times

Like many Americans, I did not see Margot Fonteyn onstage until late in her career. On film she seemed all big dark eyes, dazzling smile and invincible gentility. How could the world have loved her so? <a href=http://www.nytimes.com/2004/12/28/books/28dunn.html?ex=1105246800&en=7a793a8fb490d26d&ei=5006&partner=ALTAVISTA1 target=_blank>more</a>

Dance fever

by ALAN PETER RYAN
the Chicago Tribune

"She is not just the best 53-year-old ballerina in the business," critic Clive Barnes wrote at the time, "she is still, without qualification, the greatest ballerina in the world."
