    DescriptionFrom a desperately poor village in northeast China, at age eleven, Li Cunxin was chosen by Madame Mao's cultural delegates to be taken from his rural home and brought to Beijing, where he would study ballet. In 1979, the young dancer arrived in Texas as part of a cultural exchange, only to fall in love with America-and with an American woman. Two years later, through a series of events worthy of the most exciting cloak-and-dagger fiction, he defected to the United States, where he quickly became known as one of the greatest ballet dancers in the world. This is his story, told in his own inimitable voice.

    Christine This auto-biography is wonderful. It captures the truly beautiful nature of dance, love and big dreams. It makes you wish for such a dream, a goal, that you would do anything to achieve. Li Cuxin captivates the reader, and envelops them into a world of ballet, triumph and desperation.
    This book is inspiring and a wonderful read, to this day remaining as one of my all time favourite books. by Christine
