Overview

Legendary singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen (1934 - 2016) created a brilliant body of work that explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships--but few really knew the man behind the music. In The Lyrics of Leonard Cohen: All the Answers Are Here, folksinger, documentarian, and broadcaster Malka Marom shares previously unpublished interviews and unseen photos of the much-loved musician, poet, and novelist, interspersed between the lyrics to over 100 of Cohen's classic songs.

Gleaned from her interviews spanning her four-decade friendship with Cohen, Marom details Cohen's political activity following the Yom Kippur war of 1973, his connection to Phil Spector, friendship with Bob Dylan, and his absolute devotion as a father, and juxtaposes these intimate details with the songs and lyrics they inspired--many of which have been recorded by a new generation of artists including U2, Jeff Buckley, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, and Teddy Thompson.

The Lyrics of Leonard Cohen: All the Answers Are Here is the definitive compilation of Cohen's famed song lyrics and the man who wrote them, a crucial addition to to any fan's collection.
