Chicago Review Press

Through the memories of his women and confidantes, this biography provides a fresh portrait of virtuoso pianist Glenn Gould, detailing his many motivations, dreams, quirks, and fears. Filled with personal stories from the people who were intimately involved with the man, this account shows how Gould, the world’s greatest pianist in the 1950s and 1960s, was richly inspired by, and bared his soul at the keyboard to, the numerous women who stirred his hard-to-fetch emotions. Long considered to be an asexual, lonely, and egocentric figure, this exposé-by examining the details about Gould’s many love affairs and how they affected his life, music, and filmmaking-presents a unique perspective on one of the most enigmatic artists of the 20th century.
