Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs celebrates the
astonishing career of Leonard Cohen, revered around the world as
one of the great visionaries, writers, performers, and most
consistently daring songwriters.
Cohen's career began in 1956 with the publication of Let Us
Compare Mythologies, and he has since published eight books of
poems - including The Spice-Box of Earth, Death of a
Lady's Man, and Book of Mercy - and has made numerous
albums, becoming one of the most popular and influential artists in
Canada, the United States, and Europe.
His first record, The Songs of Leonard Cohen, released in
1967, was a remarkable musical début and introduced some of his
most famous songs, including "Suzanne," "Hey, That's No Way to Say
Goodbye," and "Sisters of Mercy." From then, and with each
subsequent album, he earned the status as one of the most
dazzlingly literate songwriters of our time.
Stranger Music brings together for the first time a
comprehensive selection of Leonard Cohen's song lyrics and his
poetry, including some poems not previously published. This
landmark edition demonstrates the range and depth of Cohen's work,
revealing an extraordinary gift of language that speaks with rare
clarity, passion, and timelessness.
