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 worldwide between 1966 and 2012.
In Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen--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'll find interviews that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also material that has not
previously been printed in English. Some of it has not been available until now in any format, including many
illuminating reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology.
