The Cranes Dance
[a Novel]Book - 2012
Set in New York and centered around a major company similar to the New York City Ballet, this is the story of two talented sisters from Michigan, Gwen and Kate, and what their life is like when they come to the city and are accepted into the ultimate company. It is also a noirish tale about the quest for perfection and the toll such demands can take on young ballerinas. Narrated by Kate in a voice that is smart, funny, and sarcastic, with fascinating details about backstage life, the ballets themselves, and things such as partnering, we watch Gwen and Kate begin to unravel.
