This was a very good read, documenting Leonard Cohen's progress from childhood to his present age. It drew me on and I read it quite quickly, realising that there's so much to it that it will give me reading interest and pleasure for years to come. It gives background, too, to the songs, some of which I have attempted singing. A study of his life and religious sensibility is thoroughly made as well. It left mefeeling how only he , perhaps, would have come through all his experiences calmly and becoming stronger in himself.
