A Book For The Leonard Cohen Fan In Your Life

“The older I get, the surer I am that I’m not running the show,” said Leonard Cohen a few years back and it is something that resonates with me for all sorts of reasons, but especially because it is so difficult to deny. You will not find that particular quote in Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen: Interviews and Encounters but you will find so many other that are just as good that it would be silly for you not to own a copy. If we have to grow old — and if you know of an easy alternative please do not keep it to yourself — it is nice to have some evidence that there are people who have done it before us with a level of reflection and grace that the more panicky among us can only dream of aspiring to.
