About the Author

Leonard Cohen was born in Montreal in 1934. He is the author of twelve books, including, most recently, the national bestseller Book of Longing, and has released seventeen albums.

POEM

I heard of a man
who says words so beautifully
that if he only speaks their name
women give themselves to him.

If I am dumb beside your body
while silence blossoms like tumours on our lips
it is because I hear a man climb stairs
and clear his throat outside our door. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I anticipated enjoying Cohen's first book of poetry, after all, I have been a fan of his music for nearly 40 years. However, I was truly surprised at the wonder of his language and the emotions that the works convey. I highly recommend this volume, not only to Cohen fans, but to poetry lovers in general.

Not having read anything deep and stimulating for a long time, this was brain growing.
Texts I don't know, I look up. Really am enjoying.

Whether you consider this a book of lyrics or a book of poetry, Cohen's words touch the heart, leaving you thinking about the poetry with the music lilting through your mind hours later.

As expected, Mr. Cohen delivers an excellent book that give true insight into life and relationships. His prose is as marvelous as his songwriting.

Just discovered him last year - I'm a senior citizen and was very familiar with the popular music of the sixties and seventies. Don't know how I missed him. I'm thinking some of his songs and poetry might be a little too erotic for our puritanical country. We do things behind closed doors - but don't want to hear about it or talk about it.
