The Brazilan press has hailed the new Portuguese edition of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen with rave reviews.

Estado newspaper wrote that it “offers the deepest picture ever seen of one of the most complicated artists [in] the pop universe – Cohen was not just a writer and never just a musician. What Sylvie was able to do in I’, Your Man is throw Cohen open, taking you through so many strands of the lives he lived… the mechanics of feeling… what is love.”
