Hand Signed by Michael Posner to a Book Specific Bookplate
New & Unread
Published 26th November 2020
The extraordinary life of one of the world’s greatest music and literary icons, in the words of those who knew him best. Poet, novelist, singer-songwriter, artist, prophet, icon—there has never been a figure like Leonard Cohen. From his groundbreaking and bestselling novels, The Favourite Game and Beautiful Losers, to timeless songs such as “Suzanne,” “Dance Me to the End of Love,” and “Hallelujah,” Cohen is a cherished artist. His death in 2016 was felt around the world by the many fans and followers who would miss his warmth, humour, intellect, and piercing insights. Leonard Cohen, Untold Stories chronicles the full breadth of his extraordinary life. The first of three volumes—The Early Years—follows him from his boyhood in Montreal to university, and his burgeoning literary career to the world of music, culminating with his first international tour in 1970. In this revealing and entertaining first volume, bestselling author and biographer Michael Posner exposes the unique, complex, and compelling figure of the real man.
Michael Posner spent more than three years tracking down and interviewing family, friends, contemporaries, and lovers, many of whom have never before shared their unique stories about Cohen. More than a biography, evocative of a time that readers will remember fondly, when great artists challenged conventions and pushed the boundaries of personal liberation.
