The book contains two interviews conducted over the phone by music journalist Jonathan Cott. Cott is a solid interviewer, but sometimes can't keep up with Gould, who apparently talks off the cuff with a complexity most of us would be glad to achieve in writing and few could hope to match in terms of density and erudition. As a bonus, the book contains Gould's side of the story regarding his much-recounted meeting with conductor George Szell, who famously remarked about Gould, "That nut's a genius."
I would recommend this book absolutely to anyone with more than a passing acquintance with Gould's unique music.
