About this item

A Pulitzer Prize-winning dance critic teaches us to appreciate -- and enact -- grace in every dimension, from the physical to the emotional.Grace has long been taught as essential to civilized living. The Three Graces -- goddesses of charm, beauty, and creativity -- exemplify ease and harmony with one another and the world around them. But what has happened to this simple, marvelous concept of being at ease in the world?With warmth, humor, and an ever-perceptive eye, Sarah L. Kaufman sifts the graceful from the graceless, celebrating heart-catching moments of physical elegance in sports, movies, dance, fashion, and music; rare sightings of celebrity grace; the secrets of gracious hosts; and grace found unexpectedly, in the kitchen of a high-end restaurant and among strippers in a basement bar.
