Elizabeth Kendall and D.T. Max in conversation about the biographies they completed as resident fellows of the Leon Levy Center for Biography. Kendall's Balanchine and the Lost Muse: Revolution and the Making of a Choreographer (Oxford, July 2013) is the first dual biography of the early lives of two key figures in Russian ballet, legendary choreographer George Balanchine and his childhood friend and extraordinary ballerina Liidia (Lidochka) Ivanova. Max's Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace (Viking, August 2012) was a New York Times bestseller named by several critics as one of the best books of the year.
