Drawing on 20 years of intensive research, including unrestricted access to private papers and interviews with scores of friends and colleagues, Bazzana sheds new light on Glenn Gould, one of the most celebrated pianists of recent time.


"As Kevin Bazzana points out at the beginning of WONDROUS STRANGE, his supremely thorough and illuminating biography, Gould has endured....Bazzana is conscious of dealing with an extraordinary individual, one whose extraordinariness was bound up with his mercuriality and multiplicity. It is a Gouldian strength of this book that it acknowledges paradox...." - Paul Griffiths 06/14/2004

New Yorker
"Bazzana's portrait--the most balanced yet--ingeniously provides contexts for Gould's behavior....[Bazzana is] a keen deflater of myths....Still, those for whom the eccentricities are half the fun will find endless delight in the meticulous accounts...." 06/14/2004

Times Literary Supplement
"Some biographers fawn over their subject, but Bazzana accepts the pianist's failings along with his genius....There will be other books on Gould..., but I doubt if there will be one that is more thorough and entertaining than this....Anyone reading Kevin Bazzana's biography will, by the end, have a much clearer picture of Canadian musical life in the twentieth century--and for that alone I am grateful. Gould was its star, however, and WONDROUS STRANGE is a fit description of that star's brief but dazzling transit." - Angela Hewitt 08/20/2004

New York Review of Books
"[T]he best account so far of [Gould's] life: lucid, balanced, intelligent, and wide-ranging." - Michael Kimmelman 10/07/2004
