From Publishers' Weekly:

At 15, Farrell arrived in Manhattan, where she was eventually discovered, molded and wooed by George Balanchine. With former New York City Ballet dancer Bentley, she tells her extraordinary and often controversial tale ``with humility, integrity, wit and sophistication,'' said PW. Photos. (Dec.)

From Library Journal:

The dance world has been waiting to hear Farrell's story ever since this noted ballerina retired from the New York City Ballet in 1989, six years after the death of NYCB director George Balanchine, acknowledged choreographic genius of this century. As Balanchine's muse and center of his attentions, she collaborated with him in the creation of his most enduring ballets. Though she could not reciprocate in kind when he fell in love with her, she speaks with real feeling of their mutual devotion, which found its physical consummation in their work together at the ballet studio and in her performances for him onstage. The book's highest appeal will be to the dance audience; ballet students and fans will find it fascinating. It is essential for any performing arts collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/15/90.-- Sheila Riley, Smithsonian, Washington, D.C. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
