Read full description of the books:
When his 1st album was released in 1967, Leonard Cohen was already well known in his native Canada as a poet & novelist, & in the USA as the writer behind Judy Collins' hugely popular recording of Suzanne. With the sucess of the 1st & thru the release of 10 more albums, Cohen gained a reputation as a dazzlingly literate & consistently daring songwriter. Over the years his status as a cult artist has grown. In 1988 the release of his album 'I'm Your Man' put Cohen back into the mainstream spotlight. His latest recording, 'The Future' has brought him renewed, widespread acclaim & this collection will include lyrics from that album, together with many of his famous classics, such as Suzanne, Joan of Arc & The Chelsea Hotel. Stranger Music brings together Cohen's song lyrics & a generous selection of his poetry (originally published between 1956-92). It's a long overdue celebration of Leonard Cohen's extraordinary gift for language that speaks with rare clarity, passion & timelessness.

Read information about the authorLeonard Norman Cohen was a Canadian singer-songwriter, poet and novelist. Cohen published his first book of poetry in Montreal in 1956 and his first novel in 1963.
Cohen's earliest songs (many of which appeared on the 1968 album Songs of Leonard Cohen) were rooted in European folk music melodies and instrumentation, sung in a high baritone. The 1970s were a musically restless period in which his influences broadened to encompass pop, cabaret, and world music. Since the 1980s he has typically sung in lower registers (bass baritone, sometimes bass), with accompaniment from electronic synthesizers and female backing singers.
His work often explores the themes of religion, isolation, sexuality, and complex interpersonal relationships.
Cohen's songs and poetry have influenced many other singer-songwriters, and more than a thousand renditions of his work have been recorded. He has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame and is also a Companion of the Order of Canada, the nation's highest civilian honour. Cohen was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 10, 2008 for his status among the "highest and most influential echelon of songwriters".
