I’m Your Man The Life of Leonard Cohen
The legend behind such songs as “Suzanne”, “Bird on the Wire”, and “Hallelujah” and the poet and novelist behind such groundbreaking literary works as Beautiful Losers and Book of Mercy, Leonard Cohen is one of the most important and influential artists of our era, a man of powerful emotion and intelligence whose work has explored the definitive issues of human life – sex, religion, power, meaning, love. Cohen is also a man of complexities and seeming contradictions: a devout Jew, who is also a sophisticate and ladies’ man, as well as an ordained Buddhist monk whose name, Jikan – “ordinary silence” – is quite the appellation for a writer and singer whose life has been anything but ordinary.

Whether navigating Cohen’s journeys through the back streets of Mumbai or the countless hotel rooms where he has stayed al…
