The Batman and the Ballerina — Dean Feldpausch

The Batman and the Ballerina — Dean Feldpausch


One of aviation's greatest heroes
One of ballet's greatest dancers

Daredevil Clem Sohn was an airshow superman, famous throughout the United States and Europe for his 20,000-foot glides on wings of his own design.

By 1937, beautiful, graceful Margot Fonteyn was well on her way to becoming Britain’s Prima Ballerina. In her autobiography, she described receiving a bouquet of flowers and a note from Clem after one of her performances ... and just a few days before Clem perished.

From these two facts, author Dean Feldpausch creates a gravity-defying love story for all ages.

“A story that pulls at the heartstrings. The tale of Clem’s life, tragically and poetically foreshortened, makes for a fascinating read. ... An account of love, loss, and high aerial theatrics, The Batman and the Ballerina reveals the touching story of Michigan’s own unsung Icarus.”
