Facinating photographs, not especially interesting otherwise. ( )

I finished reading Blood Memory, the Martha Graham autobiography. I've got the Sceptre edition with many wonderful photographs from her career. A full and fascinating life is described, not without its moments of heartbreak and poignancy. The woman's wit comes through with a real immediacy and throughout the text her love of dance and the human body is ever present. ( )

Posthumous work, a kind of tell all, not well written or that well organized. However the information, sometimes unreliable (e.g. being a neighbor of A. Dreyfus in Santa Barbara), sheds light on the dominant figure of American Dance in the 20th century. Good read if not only for the gossip. ( )

A little pretentious, but then she was Martha Graham and I was no one. ( )
