Considered one of the most influential musicians and cultural figures of his time, Glenn Gould remains a fascinating figure.

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. 2017.
