Leonard Cohen: Kill Your Idols Series
David Sheppard (au)
Leonard Cohen is the kind of artist who divides listeners into camps marked “love” & “hate.” With a reputation as a lugubrious-voiced depressive, his name is often a byword for a peculiarly 60s brand of self-indulgence. In his defense is the heart-stopping poignancy of his concert & record performances & the sensuality with which he lays bare his artistic soul. From his Montreal childhood to his current monastic lifestyle, this book traces Cohen’s 50-year odyssey through Judaic mythology, drugs, alcohol, sex, & Buddhism to locations as far-flung as Greece, Cuba, & Tennessee. He emerges as a man of immense charm & wit continually moving toward his ultimate goal: the lyrical crystallization of the human condition. Photos.
