"Direct, brash, flippant, charming, impenetrably self-assured. And funny. On just about every page, there's an anecdote or remark to make you laugh." --The New York Times Book Review

"Rollicking, uninhibited and refreshingly raw. . . Whizzing through these adventures with him feels a lot like being in the audience at one of his lively post-performance question-and-answer sessions, where Morris the everlasting bon vivant delights in holding the spotlight, typically with a wine glass in hand. . . Out Loud takes us on a swift-paced ride through a fascinating life whose joys and setbacks are viewed with a sharp eye and often dry humor. Nothing is belabored. In his writing as in his dances, Morris has a light hand. But his memoir is about more than the making of a choreographer. It's about the layering on of self-worth, and how a solid sense of who you are can equip you to survive all kinds of hell." --The Washington Post

"With the publication of his memoir, aptly titled Out Loud, we get to hear that spoken voice in all its guises: from brilliance to laugh-out-loud wit, tenderness to outrage, introspection to cockiness, gratitude to irony to (his word) vulgarity . . . the book takes you on a now riotous, now somber tour through Morris's personal history and the history of his company . . . It's a monumental task, and one done with elan and candor: He's pulling aside a curtain to let you see both the backstage to his dances and the workings of his genius mind . . . Throughout the book, Morris's eye for the telling detail astonishes, capturing the essence of a place or a person in a heartbeat." --The Boston Globe

"Mark Morris has chosen the perfect title, Out Loud, for a memoir as rollicking, brash, and thoughtful as his dances. . . . Marvelously entertaining." --Ballet Review

"Fans of modern dance are sure to enjoy this colorful, often humorous memoir." --Publishers Weekly

"Morris is frank, joyful, and, at times, provocative. . . A fascinating memoir that will engage anyone interested in dance, movement, or the creative process." --Booklist

"The absorbing story of an uncompromising genius of the dance, as revelatory and intense as his extraordinary choreography." --Salman Rushdie

"Out Loud is a golden opportunity to get inside the mind of one of the great musicians of our time and also into the history and progress of modern dance itself." --Isaac Mizrahi

"Out Loud is the story of a brilliant, complex artist, a keen observer and interpreter of the world around him, guided by one constant purpose: to create dance. This hard-to-put-down book illuminates the mind of an irreducible visionary and the art form that shaped him." --Yo-Yo Ma
