"Considered one of the most influential musicians and cultural figures of his time, Glenn Gould remains a fascinating figure. In the first book to be published in co-operation with Gould's estate, Peter Goddard draws on Gould's unpublished writings, interviews, and never-before-seen photographs to present a startling new portrait of Gould, the man and the musician. Drawing on never-before-seen material, it presents a deep and nuanced study of Gould's life with unmatched candour and clarity. Inside is a love letter Gould wrote but never sent (he later revised it again and again); the text of a speech that Gould gave to a group of children about life and childhood; and portions of Glenn Gould: hysteric return, a never-before-seen radio script in which Gould imagines his return to the concert stage and all it would have entailed. All of this and more makes The Great Gould the perfect gift for the Gould fan, or for anyone interested in Canadian music."-- Provided by publisher.
