From Booklist Gr. 5-7. From her idiosyncratic childhood to her dramatic death (she choked to death when her shawl caught in the wheel spokes of a Bugati), Isadora Duncan was unlike anyone else. Illustrated with numerous photographs, O’Connor’s biography explains how Duncan’s dance and her personal life were unusual for the timesthough they may not seem so to the MTV generation. O’Connor, who does a fair job presenting both, is especially interesting when discussing Duncan’s need for lovers and children, and her lifelong financial difficulties. Additional detail about Duncan’s dance contemporaries and her method of training dancers would have been interesting, but this picture of Duncan as an artist driven by differences she’s unable to nurture leaves a strong and sad impression.
