Leonard Cohen

Everybody knows
by Harvey Kubernik

The book

An updated edition to include details of his 13th studio album Popular Problems, released a day after his 80th birthday in September 2014 to positive reviews with the Telegraph calling the album 'a masterpiece.' Lavishly illustrated, respected journalist Harvey Kubernik charts Leonard Cohen's extraordinary career in detail, placing his literary and musical achievements within the context of his life. From his beginnings as a writer and poet, through his classic albums of the sixties and seventies up to his triumphant, recent tours, every stage of Cohen's remarkable life is expertly analysed. The book includes more than 200 photographs and the thoughts, memories and comments of those who have worked with him and the many who have been inspired by this most unique of artists.
