Publisher Description

Singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen is one of the most important and influential musical artists of the past fifty years—and one of the most elusive. In I’m Your Man, journalist Sylvie Simmons, one of the foremost chroniclers of the world of rock ’n’ roll and popular music, explores the extraordinary life and creative genius of Leonard Cohen.

I’m Your Man is an intimate and insightful appreciation of the man responsible for “Suzanne,” “Bird on a Wire,” “Hallelujah,” and so many other unforgettable, oft-covered ballads and songs.  Based on Simmons’s unparalleled access to Cohen—and written with her hallmark blend of intelligence, integrity, and style—I’m Your Man is the definitive biography of a major musical artist widely considered in a league with the great Bob Dylan.

Readers of Life by Rolling Stone Keith Richards and Patti Smith’s phenomenal Just Kids will be riveted by this fascinating portrait of a singular musical icon.

History teaches us ,

Extremely well written and compelling.

Anyone who enjoys language will find the writer of this book A grammarian! Leonard Cohen was a man of profound use of words and emotions. The writer of this book has the same ability to convey deep and contemplative revelations. The book is very interesting. Leonard Cohen absolutely ‘came alive’ as the pages turned. I would suggest that you check with Wikipedia on many of the other people discussed in the book. It expands the experience Leonard Cohen was having in his life to learn more about the main characters in his life as well as Leonard himself. You will not be disappointed by this book. It is interesting and well written. It did a good job of making Leonard feel real and did well with the complications of his personality and temperament. Really really good book!
