About the Author:

Leonard Cohen published his first book of poetry in 1956, followed by nine others over the years. He turned to music in the 1960s, creating numerous albums, earning a classification by Lou Reed as of the "highest and most influential echelon of songwriters," and earning a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. He is the author of Beautiful Losers, Book of Longing, and Let Us Compare Mythologies. He lives in Los Angeles and Montreal.

Review:

"A pure and profane pleasure."  —Record Collector

"Brilliant, explosive, a fountain of talent . . . James Joyce is not dead . . . he lives under the name of Cohen . . . writing from the point of view of Henry Miller."  —Boston Herald on Beautiful Losers

"Book of Longing has exceptional range. It is clear yet steamy, cosmic yet private, both playful and profound."  —New York Times on Book of Longing
