The best part of this book is that the author knows enough about dance to talk about Bob Fosse in terms of his contribution to dance I really liked Mr Winkler s input He identifies Fosse contributions such as the amoeba and unit of three dance units But he also points out where Fosse derived some things such as the movements in Steam Heat Still the book is a biography and some of it is gossipy Perversely I enjoyed that too It grounds Fosse in relationship to his time I became aware of Fosse s dislike of wigs throughout his life which led to his signature hats His youth in burlesue led to his inclusion of sexuality in his choreography Fosse always fought for control of his products but he succeeded the most when he did not have that complete control And most sadly Fosse wanted to dance himself throughout his life He was fantastic but he did not have the time and sometimes the talent to compete with the dancers he put in his own productions
