• Dancers Dancing

    It is 1972: a group of teenagers are spending a month in a Donegal Gaeltacht, learning Irish language and culture from their teachers and the local community. Liberated for the first time from the restricting reins of parental control, they respond to the untamed landscape of river, hill and sea, finding in it unnerving echoes of their own submerged - and now emerging - wildnesses. In this richly complex novel, Eilis Ni Dhuibhne, one of Ireland's foremost contemporary novelists, uses the experiences and emotions of girls on the cusp of womanhood to explore dangerous territories of sex, politics, class and Irishness. This is a new, updated edition that includes an exclusive Blackstaff 'Bookends' section, with a review, author interview and much, much more.

  • A Body of Work: Dancing to the Edge and Back

    David Hallberg, the first American to join the famed Bolshoi Ballet as a principal dancer and the dazzling artist The New Yorker described as “the most exciting male dancer in the western world,” presents a look at his artistic life—up to the moment he returns to the stage after a devastating injury that almost cost him his career.Beginning with his real-life Billy Elliot childhood—an all-American story marred by intense bullying—and culminating in his hard-won comeback, Hallberg’s “moving and intelligent” (Daniel Mendelsohn) memoir dives deep into life as an artist as he wrestles with ego, pushes the limits of his body, and searches for ecstatic perfection and fulfillment as one of the world’s most acclaimed ballet dancers. Rich in detail ballet fans will adore, Hallberg presents an “unsparing…inside look” (The New York Times) and also reflects on universal and relatable themes like inspiration, self-doubt, and perfectionism as he takes readers into daily class, rigorous rehearsals, and triumphant performances, searching for new interpretations of ballet’s greatest roles. He reveals the loneliness he felt as a teenager leaving America to join the Paris Opera Ballet School, the ambition he had to tame as a new member of American Ballet Theatre, and the r...
