Blood Memory by Martha Graham
This is Martha Graham's own account of her singular life and career, which spans the century. Illustrated with over 100 photographs, many from her own collection, her autobiography contains portraits of the extraordinary artists whom she knew, and with whom she worked. She tells of her continual struggle against poverty and adversity, to create works of power, eroticism and love. Martha Graham has been called the most important and influential American artist ever born. Dancer, choreographer and teacher, she ranks with such 20th-century artists as Picasso, Stravinsky and Joyce, who broke moulds and created new forms of expression.
