Kira, a bull dancer of Crete, is injured in the bull ring and returns home. To keep a promise she made to her dying father, she must follow another path in life and teams up with her brother Niko to expand their familyas merchant business. She and Niko venture to many ancient seaports as well as Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Kira finds Abraham, camped near t The year is B. Kira finds Abraham, camped near the Dead Sea, to deliver a mysterious book meant for him. Traveling on to Babylon, Kira and Niko buy a boat and sail to Ubar, a city in southern Arabia that has the purest incense in the known world. It is worth more than gold.

If they can establish a trade route from Ubar to the kingdoms of the north, they will become rich. Paperback , pages. And then she has a stab at describing the introversion of ballet: Then a performer appears and you dance outwards but that is not necessarily you, it is something you have created. The old boiled sweet she mentioned reminds me to ask about her relationship with food.

She has written about it and said she was grateful to have avoided anorexia as a young dancer because she lacked the willpower to deprive herself. More recently, she wrote a damning article about the film Black Swan , declaring: Well, it's not like that at the Royal Ballet. She argues that for women — not only dancers — food is "the easiest way of trying to control their lives". She was fortunate, she says, because, at the end of her first dancing decade, she was re-educated by her then boyfriend, Torje Eike, a Norwegian physiotherapist.

He came to work at the Royal Ballet and said: And because we were in a relationship, I trusted him. Women of my age can't stop thinking potatoes and bread are bad. I had to turn it on its head: These days — and on this subject — she is a woman on a mission. In The Everyday Dancer , she writes: Beauty need not be born of its own despair.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

There was a "dressing room wisdom that was not always very wise". Speaking of being on a mission, I felt, reading her book, that joining the ballet is not a million miles from induction into a religious order? She acquiesces — up to a point. There is the "sense of vocation" and there is the rigour. I ask about the contradiction between the selflessness of the corps and the emergence of stars whose job it is to stand out? She maintains that the experience of being in the corps is partly what shapes a principal.

In other ways, being a dancer couldn't be less like joining a religious order. And she tells me a little about life outside Covent Garden. Though Eike is no longer her partner, they are still friends. She observes that she has always tended to gravitate towards relationships with non-dancers.

Her ex-husband, Charles Bliss, was an architect and her present partner she prefers to keep his name to herself makes films.

Her own expertise now extends way beyond dance. She is a talented speaker.

This was first remarked upon after a debate at the Oxford Union at which she argued against: Her fluency is still uncanny. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Get to Know Us.
