I’M YOUR MAN; THE LIFE OF LEONARD COHEN by SYLVIE SIMMONS

With so many anecdotal and selective-memory autobiographies around by musicians, it’s a pleasure to read a serious writer dissecting, illuminating and revealing the life and diverse work (music, poetry, novels) of such a deserving subject as Cohen, who co-operated graciously but never interfered or asked to see the manuscript. Cohen’s a rare one, and assiduous research and insight show why.
