And her book is worth celebrating. It’s the best book I’ve read about Leonard Cohen. It’s one of the best music books I’ve ever read; one of the best biographies I’ve read. It’s one of my favourite books. She writes like a dream, the research is there – she’s managed to get people to go on the record who have not, previously, spoken about Cohen. And there’s a weight, a gravitas to Leonard’s life and work. Simmons addresses this with full respect, allows it to shine.
Dr Heck Note: I think he likes it.
