Wow, this is exciting news. After waiting all these years, though, I'd feel a little better if the publication date were not April 1. :wub:

There are supposed to be several books on Balanchine released to coincide with his centennial. And I'm going to gobble them all up :wub:

Reminds me of the time some wag wrote a press release announcing an autobiography by J.D. Salinger with an introduction by Thomas Pynchon. Release date: April 1! :wub:

Mmmm, I can't see Arlene Croce doing an April Fools' joke. And she has been working on this book for a long time. But you never know....

I think it's probably for real, Dale. Balanchine was never a recluse like Salinger, and to have an intro to his autobiography by the nearly-as-reclusive Pynchon was the tip with the April Fools' joke.

That's funny, Mel. The only thing missing would be an announcement that Salinger and Pynchon would be appearing jointly on Oprah to publicize the book. :devil:


Farrar Straus and not Knopf?

Yes, it's Farrar Strauss (books often change publishers when editors leave, etc.) It could be that the publisher intends for the book to be on the spring 2004 list, rather than a set in stone release date and may be subject to change.
