Strong female leads are important.
In 1998, Vanity Fair asked me to write a big piece for them on the 50th anniversary of the New York City Ballet. My life, to a great extent, had been spent at and with the New York City Ballet, and I decided to try it.

When I learnt to write I became my own master, I became very strong, and that strength is with me to this very day.
V. S. Naipaul

People think I'm so strong, but I'm very shy.
