Reprieve

Agnes de Mille

Signet / ISBN 0451119142 (1981)

My copy is an old paperback, bought secondhand at a
bookstore in Berkeley, but I'll probably read it
again every few years because as I get older
myself it has even more meaning to me.

In 1975 Agnes de Mille suffered a serious stroke
which nearly proved fatal. Worse, for a dancer-
choreographer, was the loss of control over her
body. How she fought to get it back is the kind
of story we all need to hear and remember.

These things can happen to anyone, anytime.
