The definitive biography of one of the most emigmatic, beloved, and celebrated artists of our time.

Leonard Cohen's extensive and successful recent worldwide tour has demonstrated that his popularity across generations and borders has never been greater. Cohen's life is one of singular mystique. This major in-depth biography is the book Cohen's fans have been waiting for. Acclaimed writer/journalist Sylvie Simmons has interviewed more than 100 figures from Cohen's life and work, including his main muses; the women in his life -- from Suzanne and Marianne to Rebecca de Mornay and Anjani Thomas; artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Nick Cave, David Crosby, Judy Collins, and Philip Glass; his record producers; his closest friends, from childhood to adulthood; and many of the spiritual figures who have influenced his life.

Cohen, notoriously private, has granted interviews himself. Thoroughly researched and thoughtful, penetrating and lively, fascinating and revealing of stories and facts never read before, I'm Your Man offers new perspectives on Cohen and his life. It will be one of the most talked-about books of the season, and for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for I'm Your Man • "I'm Your Man is the major, soul-searching biography that Leonard Cohen deserves." -- Janet Maslin, New York Times • "The most comprehensive Cohen biography to date. . . . I'm Your Man will be the go-to text for the next few years as it has all the key stuff -- about the two Suzannes, life on the Greek island of Hydra, hanging with Irving Layton, freaking with Phil Spector during the 1977 recording of Death of a Ladies' Man, monking about with Sasaki Roshi on Mount Baldy, romancing Rebecca de Mornay, the triumph of Hallelujah. . . ." -- Globe and Mail • "Impresses with its thoroughness. . . . Simmons' assiduous research easily earns her work the 'definitive' label." -- Toronto Star
