Success as a classically trained pianist came early for HŽlne Grimaud, who made her first recording at age fifteen. But in the following years, despite sellout concerts around the world, she still felt as if something was missing-until an extraordinary meeting with a she-wolf changed her perspective and her world.

It's hard to imagine two topics less likely to merge into a single story than the early life and career of a concert pianist and a developing relationship with wolves. But that's the true-life story of Helene Grimaud. Temperamental, driven, at times rebellious to the point of perversity but also sensitive, perceptive and extremely gifted, Grimaud would make an interesting study for anyone tuned in to classical music and the people who perform it. But add to that the sequence of events that began with a late-night walk in Florida and you have a truly unique tale.

An interesting "autobiography" of a very talented and mesmerizing pianist. She talks of her feelings, philosophies, and her training at a young age. She also explores relationships of humans to other species, especially in regards to her favorite:wolves. recommended.
