The highly anticipated memoir of Australian ballerina Mary Li and the long-awaited sequel to her husband Li Cunxin’s bestselling memoir, Mao’s Last Dancer... But that book told only half the story.

Mary’s Last Dance is a powerful and uplifting memoir about chasing an impossible dream, and sacrificing one’s own ambition for the love of a child. It is a moving and unforgettable story of passion, dedication and devotion.

Mary’s Last Dance is as much Sophie’s story as it is Mary’s. It is, above all else, a story of love; a love of art, a love of family, and the unbreakable love of a parent for her child.
