“I’m Your Man” Featured in NY Times Holiday Gift Guide

I’m Your Man was included in the “Rock ‘n’ Roll and Write” gift guide in the Books section of The New York Times.

“‘I’M YOUR MAN: THE LIFE OF LEONARD COHEN’ by Sylvie Simmons (Ecco, $27.99). This isn’t a memoir; it’s a terrifically astute portrait of Leonard Cohen by a biographer who deeply understands him. Since Mr. Cohen, for all his preternatural eloquence, never writes about himself straightforwardly, Ms. Simmons is an uncommonly valuable interpreter of his behavior. She also captures the full span of an extraordinary career, ranging from Leonard Cohen, cheerleader (really) to Leonard Cohen, hedonist, to Leonard Cohen, monk, to Leonard Cohen, septuagenarian smash. Ms. Simmons’s book is worthy of her subject, which is really saying a lot.”
