This book is a little psycological portrait of GG. The author is a renowned
French psycologist, very interested in music and a pianist himself
(although not a concert pianist). The book is divided (as many other things
about GG) in 32 little chapters, named, of course, Aria, I variation, II
variation and so on...
It was translated in Italian few years ago, and is one of the fewest books
available here in Italy about GG. It's a good book, with a very personal
approach on Gould's thinking about life and music.
