Pluckiness: this old-fashioned word conveys the extraordinary qualities of a young woman from Cape Town trying to realise her childhood dream to dance in an international ballet company. In her letters to her mother, Selina Molteno makes acute and witty observations about the places and people she encounters. The world of London, Stockholm, Malmö, Copenhagen and Paris of the 1960s comes alive. But it is the world seen through the eyes of an ever-hopeful dancer – fraught, amusing, mildly dangerous and full of nostalgia and longing for home and family.
