A Dance Against Time: The Brief, Brilliant Life of a Joffrey Dancer
When ballet master Robert Joffrey invited Eddie Stierle to New York to join the Joffrey Ballet, Eddie took the town and the ballet world by storm. Then, at age 19, Eddie tested positive for HIV. At 23, he was dead. This is a powerful book about creativity, love, and the human spirit, beautifully illustrated with rare, dramatic photographs.
