Peter Goddard, the long-time music and visual arts critic for the Toronto Star, has hosted and contributed to numerous radio and television programs. A former Toronto Star music critic and the author of fifteen musical biographies, including books on Frank Sinatra, Bowie, Springsteen, and The Rolling Stones, Peter is also a composer and a musician himself, and has performed as a concert pianist and has also played in a variety of bands. He lives in Creemore, Ontario.

The Great Gould

Considered one of the most influential musicians and cultural figures of his time, Glenn Gould remains a fascinating figure. With the support of the Glenn Gould Estate, Peter Goddard has drawn on Gould’s unpublished writings, interviews, and never-before-seen photographs to present a startling new portrait of Gould, the man and the musician.
