By (author) Oleg Kerensky.

Anna Pavlovna Pavlova, born Anna Matveyevna Pavlova (Russian: Анна Матвеевна Павлова ; February 12 1881 – January 23, 1931), was a Russian prima ballerina of the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. She was a principal artist of the Imperial Russian Ballet and the Ballets Russes of Sergei Diaghilev.

Pavlova, Anna (1881–1931). One of the greatest classical Russian ballerinas of the 20th century who was responsible for popularizing ballet throughout the world. Pronunciation: PAV-lov-a. Born Anna Matveevna Pavlova on January 31, 1881 (. in St. Petersburg; died of pneumonia in The Hague, the Netherlands, on January 23, 1931; illegitimate daughter of Lazar Jacovlevich Poliakov (an aristocratic banker) and Liubov Fedorovna Pavlova (a laundress); attended Imperial Ballet School, 1891–99; reputedly married Victor Dandré, in 1914; no children.

With its snippets of dialogue and interpretations of the subject's thoughts and feelings, the book reads like a novel. It also paints a vivid picture of the life of a dancer in the Soviet Union during the late 1800s and early 1900s. A selection of well-reproduced black-and-white photographs appears in the center of the book, and a helpful glossary of ballet terms is appended.

For this book, Kerensky drew on first-hand impressions from those who knew Pavlova--including former members of her company--as well as extensive research to produce the first complete, objective biography of this great and influential Russian dancer.
