Happy Tuesday peeps!
I’m rarely home on this day of the week, but since I worked on Sunday…here I am. I like to look at new- to- me memes when I find them, and sometimes I’ll try one out for fun even tho it has nothing to do with books. I may test drive a few today…we’ll see.
This one is a Q and A type…much like “Curious As a Cat” which I usually do on Mondays…
Exiled in Paris, the frail, elderly Mathilde Kschessinska sits down to write her memoirs. A lifetime ago, she was the vain, ambitious, impossibly charming prima ballerina assoluta of the tsar’s Russian Imperial Ballet in St. Petersburg. Kschessinska’s riveting storytelling soon thrusts us into a world lost to time: that great intersection of the Russian court and the Russian theater. Through Kschessinska’s memories of her own triumphs and defeats, we witness the stories that changed history, from the seething beginnings of revolution to the end of a grand, decadent way of life that belonged to the nineteenth century. Based on fact, The True Memoirs of Little K is “an engrossing tale of love, loss, and history”
