WITH A NEW AFTERWORD BY THE AUTHOR

The definitive biography of the late Leonard Cohen - singer-songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist.

The genius behind such classic songs as Suzanne, So Long, Marianne, Bird on the Wire and Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen has been one of the most important and influential songwriters of our time, a man of spirituality, emotion, and intelligence whose work has explored the definitive issues of human life - sex, religion, power, meaning, love.

I'm Your Man explores the facets of Cohen's life. Renowned music journalist Sylvie Simmons draws on Cohen's private archives and a wealth of interviews with many of his closest associates, colleagues, and other artists whose work he has inspired.

Containing exclusive material and interviews, this is the biography to buy on Leonard Cohen.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Cohen gets the music biography he truly deserves * Mojo *
Simmons' clear affection for her subject helps to illuminate Cohen's motivations and working methods and gives an intriguing insight into his singular mind * Sunday Times *
The year's most meticulous, elegant and satisfying rock book * Independent *
Simmons loves language, hates cliche and takes her time... [she] recreates long-gone incidents with such vigour that you'd swear Simmons was there at the time, sitting in the corner and taking notes * Guardian *
A well-rounded portrait of the poet-singer...his dry wit finds an echo in Simmons's phrase-making * Financial Times *
