Product description


"I love the way Cohen speaks [in this book]--he is so disarming and seductive. I always burst out laughing; he is funny and deep."--Bella Freud, Vanity Fair

" Jeff Burger has selected interviews and quotes, many of which haven't [previously] been published in English, that will prove as fascinating to Cohen newcomers as to his most diehard fans."-- Parade magazine

Product Description

Leonard Cohen, one of the most admired performers of the last half century, has had a stranger-than-fiction, roller-coaster ride of a life. Now, for the first time, he tells his story in his own words, via more than 50 interviews conducted world-wide between 1966 and 2012. In this book -- which includes a foreword by singer Suzanne Vega and eight pages of rarely seen photos -- the artist talks about "Bird on the Wire", "Hallelujah", and his other classic songs. He candidly discusses his famous romances, his years in a Zen monastery, his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil Spector, his long battle with depression, and much more. You will find interviews that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also conversations that have not previously been printed in English. Some of the material here has not been available until now in any format, including the many illuminating reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology.
