On August 11, Bloomsbury in England will start selling the book in the U.K. This might have piqued the interest of producers at the BBC sufficiently to interview me on the Today Programme. Since I’m in England anyway, it made sense to do the interview sooner rather than later. So yesterday I ventured out to the vast BBC complex to talk briefly — and I mean ever so briefly — about the book.
The host was James Naughtie, who knows a lot about Gould in particular and music in general. We managed to cover a lot of ground in three minutes!
