“A treasure trove for Leonard Cohen fans—the dazzling, wide-ranging collection of interviews that Jeff Burger has unearthed not only offers the songwriter’s story in his own words but reveals that Cohen’s language in conversation can be every bit as magnificent as his lyrics.” —Alan Light, author of The Holy or the Broken This book collects more than fifty interviews with Leonard Cohen, one of the most admired performers of the last half century, conducted worldwide between 1966 and 2012, and also includes a foreword by singer Suzanne Vega and eight pages of rarely seen photos. In it, the artist talks about “Bird on the Wire,” “Hallelujah,” “Famous Blue Raincoat,” and his other classic songs. He candidly discusses his famous romances, his years in a Zen monastery, his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil Spector, and his long battle with depression. He also comments on his sometimes controversial poetry and novels, the financial crisis that nearly wiped out his savings, and his remarkable late-career resurgence. Here you’ll find interviews that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also conversations that have not previously been printed in English, as well as many illuminating reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology. Jeff Burger is the editor of Springsteen on Springsteen. He has contributed to Barron’s, Family Circle, GQ, the Los Angeles Times, Reader’s Digest, and more than seventy-five other magazines, newspapers, and books. He lives in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
The death of Leonard Cohen in 2016 struck the world a hard blow; he was a fruitful, thoughtful and tragic talent, with his critically-acclaimed You Want it Darker entering the world only three weeks before his death. Cohen's work is now finished and represents and oeuvre of near unparalleled majesty. Everybody Knows is a detailed examination of the journey that Leonard Cohen wove, from his beginnings as a novelist and poet, his critically acclaimed ‘cult-classic’ albums of the sixties through to his triumphant tours of the new millennium. Every stage of Cohen's remarkable life up until his 80th birthday in September 2014 is expertly analysed, including thoughts, memories and comments from those who have worked with him and from the open-hearted many who have been inspired by his art. This Omnibus Enhanced edition includes a Digital Timeline of his life, allowing you to experience his music, live performances and memorabilia through audio, video and imagery.
Anthony Reynolds’ fascinating and detailed biography draws on scores of new interviews conducted with Cohen’s band members past and present, his business associates, editors, friends, fans, producers, colleagues, enemies and peers. As well as their revealing accounts, the author has gained access to hours of previously unpublished interviews with Cohen as well as video archive recordings from several decades. The book also includes an authoritative summary of every Cohen album, with insights and recollections supplied from the musicians who appeared on the recordings. Gradually, despite Cohen’s own good-natured evasiveness over the past 40 years, a surprisingly frank portrait begins to emerge of the legendary figure who commands unparalleled loyalty from his fans and followers, young and old. From the distant days of his penniless beginnings as a much-praised poet in Montreal, through the travels, affairs and religious crisis to his latest tours, Cohen’s extraordinary life and body of work is examined as never before. The book includes many previously unpublished photographs.
Author Kathleen Keena was a part-time college English teacher, Method-trained actor, and community director when she met Clark Bowlen, theater chair at Manchester Community College in Connecticut in 1988. They formed an artistic partnership that combined their diverse strengths to produce classic and contemporary shows. Actors joined them as fellow artists on a journey that spanned the academic, community, and theatrical world. Their work included a hip-hop “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” a rock-and-roll “Taming of the Shrew,” a postwar-themed show performed by Vietnam veterans, and several original musicals. Nontraditional theater productions that addressed contemporary social issues became their signature work. In The Play’s the Thing, Keena documents the nature and process of that work to show how they developed a theater department at a local community college and took it beyond the campus walls. She also offers additional information about theater including: what makes a good script; the interpretive analysis of a script; challenges common to specific script categories and the continuity of lighting, sound and costuming to create a sustained suspension of reality. Documenting an artistic journey, The Play’s the Thing shares one couples’ contributions to theater and shows how they facilitated innovative approaches to conventional theater.
With previously unpublished songs and poems of LEONARD COHEN "Exploring the vagaries of a topic that, for Cohen, was a poetic cosmos unto itself: romance." 'Rolling Stone' In 1979 Leonard Cohen set off on his Field Commander Cohen world tour accompanied by Harry Rasky. Rasky was a young filmmaker and it would be one of the wildest years of his life. From soaking in a Jacuzzi with Cohen, drinking wine and discussing the meaning of life to the pair running away from armed police in Germany suspected of being Bader-Meinhof terrorists this is the full story of that tour and a rare insight into Leonard Cohen the poet, musician and man. Harry Rasky created the acclaimed documentary The Song of Leonard Cohen and he has now delved into his personal archives and diaries to write this intimate and moving portrait of Cohen. Including previously unseen photos, as well as Cohen's own commentary on his writing and his development as a writer no other book gets so close to Leonard Cohen the writer. Also containing a special bonus chapter, The Dylan Diaries, based on Harry Rasky's notes from an abandoned 1966 documentary project with Bob Dylan that captures Dylan's chaotic creativity at the time.
