Product Overview

Vivacious and charming, ballerina Lydia Lopokova leapt to the height of fame with Diaghilev's legendary Ballets Russes. Then, a surprising marriage to renowned economist (and former homosexual) John Maynard Keynes catapulted her into an entirely different universe. Her extraordinary story is told here for the first time: it links the world of ballet with the Bloomsbury groupincluding such remarkable individuals as Nijinsky, Picasso, Stravinsky, and Virginia Woolfand spans the past centurys most dramatic social, political, and cultural upheavals. Quoting from many of Lydias own writings, Judith Mackrell captures her intensely captivating, eccentric, and irreverent personality
