A nice tie-in

The New York Review of Books has posted, from its archive, a 1999 essay by Joan Acocella on Vaslav Nijinsky. (I'd like to think that the NYRB's timing is a response to Meg sparling's recent collection, The Nijinsky Poems, but it probably has more to do with Acocella's new collection of essays, Twenty-eight Artists and Two Saints, which is reviewed by Joyce Carol Oates in the NYRB's current issue.)
