First edition of the first biography of American dancer and choreographer Mark Morris, recounting the early decades of his career: "Because he seems to have a connection with so many things outside him, he doesn't feel he has to take a course in something in order to make it his. If he likes it, he uses it. He is a big mouth, a maw: he eats up everything." Inscribed by dance critic Joan Acocella to her colleague at the New Yorker, film critic Pauline Kael: "To Pauline with admiration, Joan." Extensively illustrated with black and white photographs. A fine association copy.
