Product description


"A thoughtful celebration of the artist's life...Simmons has deftly narrated Cohen's evolution... In the end, this biography has the oddest effect: as soon as you finish reading it you feel an overwhelming impulse to go back and begin again, revisiting the story with what you've learned along the way."--A.M. Homes, New York Times Book Review

"A new gold standard of Cohen bios."--Los Angeles Times

"This is the bio Cohen has long deserved, and it makes every prior Cohen book practically unnecessary."--Rolling Stone, 4 1/2 Stars

"The book is a seductive tribute to a master seducer."--The Onion A.V. Club

"A deep, enlightening book. . . Simmons, a music journalist and short-story writer, knows how to research and write and keep a critical distance from Cohen, who opens up some but uses his usual weapons, politeness and self-deprecation, to maintain an air of mystery."--The Oregonian (Portland)

"Leonard fought darkness through his work and... the light ultimately prevailed when he triumphantly toured the world for three years beginning in 2008... 'You could hear the hairs stand up on people's arms, ' writes Simmons of the hushed reverence of his audience. This book demands a similar reaction."--MOJO Magazine, 5 Stars

"This is a revelatory biography that investigates not just an artist's life, but the life of his art."--Shelf Awareness

"Simmons' rich, compelling and provocative book... is a star-studded but also frank account of how the music industry really works and, at the same time, a discerning portrait of one especially important musician."--Jewish Journal Los Angeles

"Simmons is a wonderful writer... the book informs like carefully researched non-fiction, but engages like enchanting fiction... Like listening to one of Cohen's songs, this complex, beautiful biography requires you to think about it. This book will stay with you. It will change the way you hear Leonard Cohen."--Paste Magazine

"In this elegantly crafted biography, Simmons captures the artist who, in spite of all his highs and lows, is still sharp at the edges, a wise old monk, a trouper offering up himself and his songs."--BookPage
