"Of the dozens of books and documentaries by or about the most compelling virtuoso of the twentieth century, none has contained details about Gould's many love affairs and how they affected his life, his music, and his filmmaking. Until now, biographers have tried to explain what came out of the music box, not the engine that drove it. The vault to his private life has remained locked since his untimely death in 1982 because of his obsessions with privacy and controlling his image, the loyalty of his carefully chosen friends and lovers, and the choice that biographers made to focus safely on his music and eccentricities." "The Secret Life of Glenn Gould is the first true look at the private life of Gould - who, until now, has been assumed to be asexual, lonely, and egocentric - by examining his love and soul-mate relationships through interviews with the several women Gould dated behind the scenes. From casual flirtations to full-blown affairs, Gould's relationship with many women helped shape the genius that he was famous for. His music was twelve-tonal and his documentaries "contrapuntal." Both were filled with overlapping voices - and so was his private life."--BOOK JACKET.
