Despite becoming established as one of the century's greatest choreographic masters, in 1998, Jerome Robbins died a haunted man. All his life, he was tortured by private demons: his conflicting feelings about his sexuality and his religion; his bitter relationship with his parents; his scandalous betrayals during the McCarthy hearings; and a sadistic but genius drive for perfection. Now, this groundbreaking biography, based on hundreds of interviews with friends, family and colleagues, provides the first complete portrait of the man and the artist - a harrowing, heartbreaking and triumphant work as complicated and fascinating as the man himself.
