Juliette Mapp’s Anna, Ikea, and I at Danspace: Mapp, foreground, Vicky Shick and Anna Sperber.

Mapp refers several times during the evening to Carolyn Brown’s marvelous book Chance and Circumstance, an account of Brown’s years in Cunningham’s company. But I get the impression that she hasn’t read the book about Farber by Jeff Slayton, who danced with her, and was married to her for nine years. To exorcise Farber further—and understand her more—she might take a look at it. It’s called Prickly Rose. Mapp isn’t the only one to have felt the thorns and scented the buried sweetness.
