Holding On to the Air
"...a striking sensibility on the move. When she and her co-author, Toni Bentley, report on Farrells dancing from the inside their story soars."
The Washington Post
"Dancers are not usually noted for verbal grace...Not so with Suzanne Farrell, former star of the New York City Ballet and one of the great ballerinas of her generation. Her autobiography, written with Toni Bentley, is one of the finest books Ive read about dance...General readers and dance connoisseurs alike will love this story, told with wit and suspense, of a woman struggling to reconcile the demands of her art with the demands of love."
"Holding On to the Air is as much about Mr. B as it is about Farrell, and there are many previously unglimpsed moments. The book is seamlessly put together and is something of a cliff hanger. It is also poignantly written and wrenched from the heart."
