"There must be a God, because the painful and heroic story of Henning Kronstam - who managed to be a great artist while caught between manic- depressive illness on the one hand and the decline of his ballet tradition on the other hand - was entrusted to Alexandra Tomalonis. The book shines with wisdom, decency, and erudition, and it is gorgeously written." - Joan Acocella, dance critic, The New Yorker.
