Figure skating to fancy skating : memoirs of the life of Sonja Henie
Kirby, Michael
Adult Nonfiction GV850.H4 K57 2000

Comments  Summary

Summary: Entertaining and energetic, Figure Skating to Fancy Skating is a tribute to the people who have enriched Michael Kirby's life in some way -- most of all Sonja Henie, the world renowned ice skater who was his skating partner for a while. Follow Kirby as he survives rheumatic fever to become a professional "fancy skater" and then moves on to acting in Hollywood films starring John Wayne and Lana Turner, among others. He led somewhat of a glamorous life and still managed to head a family of nine. Figure Skating to Fancy Skating is an engaging memoir of how certain people's lives influence others, an idea to which every reader can relate.
