My favorite mad dead genius

Glenn Gould, apparently prior to his debut recording, at his parents' cottage in Canada. Resplendent in what seems to be a bathrobe and with his dog looking on. Gould left most of his rather large estate to the SPCA. There are at least two biographies, Glenn Gould, A Life and Variations and Glenn Gould, Music and Mind. There is also the masterful 32 Short Films about Glenn Gould, one of my Top Ten Movies About Mad, Dead Geniuses. Last I checked the DVD was still criminally out of print and going for USD$139.00 on Amazon. I have a VHS copy.
