As the above screen capture (with my markings) from Macmillan Publishing Site indicates, Leonard Cohen’s last book, The Flame, will be available in CD and Digital Audio formats. There is no information about whose voice will be used on the audio versions. It’s intriguing to speculate if recordings of Leonard himself will be featured or, if not, who will be chosen to recite those lyrics.
The Look Of A Spanish Ladies’ Man
The latest entry In the unofficial, intermittent Cohencentric series It Sounds Cooler In Another Language (see, for example, Everything Sounds More Elegant In Italian – Including Leonard Cohen Book Titles) is “Memorias De Un Mujeriego,” the Spanish edition of Leonard Cohen’s volume of poetry, “Death Of A Lady’s Man.” In this case, the book, notwithstanding the lack of the author’s visage as seen on the cover of the US edition also looks cooler in another language.

The Flame: Poems & Notebooks
By Leonard Cohen
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Publication Date: Oct 2, 2018
Excerpted from Leonard Cohen’s Final Book to Arrive in 2018 by John Williams (NY Times: Oct. 6, 2017)
[Leonard Cohen’s] final book, to be published posthumously next year, will simply be called “The Flame.”
Farrar, Straus and Giroux announced Friday that it would publish the collection in October 2018. It will feature Mr. Cohen’s last poems, which he selected and ordered before his death, as well as selections from his notebooks, the full lyrics from his final three albums of music, prose and illustrations.
Update: Excerpted from McClelland and Stewart news release:
Robert Kory, Leonard Cohen’s manager and Trustee of the Cohen Estate, said, “During the final months of his life, Leonard had a singular focus—completing this book taken largely from his unpublished poems and selections from his notebooks. The flame and how our culture threatened its extinction was a central concern. Though in declining health, Leonard died unexpectedly. Those of us who had the rare privilege of spending time with him during this period recognized that the flame burned bright within him to the very end. This book, finished only days before his death, reveals to all the intensity of his inner fire. “
