A worthy dedication to Leonard Cohen’s unparalleled brilliance.

As a poet, singer-songwriter and author, the sheer genius and poignant work of Canada’s most beloved Renaissance man has earned him generations of fans – including many performers, from Johnny Cash to Adele.

With key insider knowledge, veteran music journalist and author Harvey Kubernik celebrates the life, music and poetry of a homegrown legend, whose moving music authentically touches the gains and losses shared by all.

Stemming from fascinating interviews with Cohen’s colleagues, producers and collaborators, Kubernik shares thoughts and memories that afford key insights into Cohen’s genius from those who are closest to him. Beginning with experiences of the young poet and author in Montreal, Kubernik takes readers through the artist’s battles with drugs, love, and bankruptcy, as well as his exploration of spirituality and choice to become a Buddhist monk while simultaneously reaffirming his Jewish faith. Readers follow Cohen’s incredible life with new depth, from his late start as a 33-year-old musician with Songs of Leonard Cohen through to Old Ideas, his 2012 studio album, and his recent acclaimed live performances.
