Modern dancer and choreographer Paul Taylor was born in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania. As a youth, Taylor excelled in sports and entered Syracuse University in 1947 on a swimming scholarship. His interest changed to dance, however, and in 1952 he entered the Julliard School, where he studied modern dance with Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, and Jose Limon and ballet with Antony Tudor and Margaret Craske. Taylor began his professional career in 1953, dancing with the Martha Graham company, where he created such roles as Aegisthus in Clytemnestra (1958) and Hercules in Alcestis (1960).

He delves into the creation of Aureole and From Sea to Shining Sea, from their initial inception to the ways in which specific dancers influenced the choreography, including such notables as Pina Bausch, Laura Dean, David Parsons, Twyla Tharp, Dan Wagoner, Senta Driver-all of whom went on to form their own companies-and others-Bettie de Jong, Nicholas Gunn, and Carolyn. Adams-who remained as much a part of the Taylor style as the choreography itself.

Paul Taylor is a gifted and unique story teller, drawing an interesting line between fact and fantasy. He keeps the reader walking that line from beginning to end. Certainly his words are another form for his dance. He gives the reader a very personal and yet deep down a very universal way of feeling your life.

Paul Taylor is a master of choreography. Now in his 70s,
he is still creating dazzling and original modern dance
pieces, which are seen and applauded around the world.
To read his autobiography, and discover that he is as
talented a writer as he is a dancemaster, is a revelation.
What next, Paul - an original full-orchestra symphony or two?

I was disappointed that the book was listed as "like new" but arrived in a soft package. A paperback cannot travel in a soft package without having some damage to the edges, if it was in fact like new before shipping. There were also some marks in the cover. I would have opted for a hard cover had I found one, but trusted the shipper to send this book in an appropriate package. Otherwise, the transaction was satisfactory.

It's good to see this new reprint of Paul Taylor's great memoir on sale. It would be a tragedy if this magnificient book were to become unavailable.
In many ways this book is like a great Taylor dance. Filled with light and shade, humor and sadness, affirmation and mockery. There is also a sense that much has been only hinted at. But whatever might be missing, there is great joy in what is present.
This is the story of Paul Taylor's life, his work, his fiends, his creative passions. It is well-writtten and understated, and filled with delicious stories and wonderful surprises.
Probably most people who love his work have read it already. But this book is so good, that a knowledge of his work is not really necessary to appreciate it. It's a glorious look into a wonderful creative mind, and never dull.
