An Autobiography

With memories by family and friends

With Zeida Cecilia-Mendez

More than an auto-biography, this is the diary of a dancer, his will to excel, the incredible years as Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theatre and his travels around the world.

Dear Friends,

It has been three years since he passed away, but no one who ever saw Fernando Bujones dance, will ever forget him. Now, a beautiful hard cover First Edition of "FERNANDO BUJONES, An Autobiography" is finally available.

The book, written from the heart, with memories by family and friends, takes the reader from his leaving Cuba at age 9, his start as a gifted student at the School of American Ballet, becoming the first American dancer to win the Gold Medal at the Varna Competitions, his rise as American Ballet Theatre's youngest Principal Dancer, and the tumultuous years that followed Mikhail Baryshnikov's take-over of ABT. Their very public disagreement and Fernando's abrupt departure from ABT takes the reader behind the curtains of the professional world of dance.

A Preface by Anna Kisselgoff, the prestigious dance critic for The New York Times, illuminates this book, as well as the innumerable reviews from dance critics from all over the world who witnessed Fernando's incredible career.
