Title: Re: [F_minor] Kingwell
Curiously, this otherwise nice article, dated 9/26, chooses to
mark the day as "the day before his stroke" rather than
"the day after his birthday". (I'll presume this is
the journalist, not Kingwell.)
Kingwell's take on Gould looks like it might be interesting, not
because of the comparison in the lede to Michael Jackson (50 year old
performers with prescription drug problems) but because Kingwell
describes as his favorite Gould album the recording of Byrd and
I've added the Kingwell book to the Wikipedia Glenn Gould
article's "books" section. The Wikipedia entry on
Kingwell may also be of interest.

1. Kingwell Biography.
Has anyone picked up the new Gould biography by Mark Kingwell? It
seems a pretty ballsy enterprise just a few years after the Bazzana
work. That said, Kingwell always has interesting things to say - is it
worth investing in post-Atlantic postage?
