Figure Skating to Fancy Skating: Memoirs of the Life of Sonia Henie

Figure Skating to Fancy Skating: Memoirs of the Life of Sonia Henie - Michael Kirby The humble (and sales-conscious) subtitle notwithstanding, this is Michael Kirby's autobiography, though he gives his years with Sonja Henie lion's share. He was Canadian champion before he met her, and ran a chain of ice rinks after their association ceased. Truly the memoirs of a man of an older generation, his attitudes sometimes grate, but the anecdotes of Henie - both good and bad - are wonderful, and so are the liberal illustrations.
