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
