Winner of the Raven Chapbooks Award

“[This] work is ASTONISHING. I’ve never read anyone who could capture the reality of what it is to be a dancer in such a guttingly raw, visceral way—no glorification or pastel sugary fluff that typically accompanies attempts to reveal the daily workings of the ballet world. This can only come from an insider’s view, and someone who is not afraid to make the grotesque and deeply dark parts familiar. Disassembling A Dancer is delicious yet challenging reading. I hope this book reaches a wide audience. It’s WONDERFUL.”

From Jennifer Nichols(lead choreographer for the Netflix series,Tiny Pretty Things).
