Simon Robinson frankly recalls his eventful year working for Nureyev. He did everything for this hopelessly impractical dancer except be his lover, much to Nureyevs disappointment. It was the Russians insatiable sexual appetite that eventually destroyed him. Nureyev had six houses on three continents but no staff in any of them and he couldnt cook, drive, write a letter, tie a necktie or even change a light bulb.

In 1990 Simon Robinson, until then professional crew on a racing yacht, became his PA. For the next twelve months they traveled from the Caribbean to America to Europe, living in luxury in Nureyevs New York and Paris apartments and in spartan isolation on his tiny Mediterranean island. Nureyevs explosive nature was exhausting to live with and many times during their year together Robinson nearly quit-and Nureyev nearly sacked him.

It didnt happen, however, because Nureyev needed his PAs calm reliability to ballast his own rocky life, and because Robinson knew that genius must make its own rules.
