Praise
"[WINTER SEASON] is one of the most intelligent and introspective glimpses ever offered into one of the most competitive and excruciatingly nervous existences in the arts."
From the Publisher
Annotation Toni Bentley's dancer memoir, written when she was 22 years old and dancing with the New York City Ballet, has become a minor classic. The book chronicles the excruciating and unforgiving lifestyle of a ballet dancer: 12-hour days with nearly nothing to eat, bloody feet from hours on point, nearly no social life as a result of the endless pursuit of perfection. But WINTER SEASON is no condemnation. Bentley's book balances these brutal realities with an unreserved love of dance and a nearly monastic devotion to the rigors of the art. Indeed, when Bentley briefly gives up dancing to pursue love, literature, and a more normal life, she suffers greatly from the lack of dance, and soon finds herself returning the beautiful tyranny of the stage.
