Leonard Cohen has probably had millions of words written about him during his long career. Few of them can have conjured such a riveting picture of the dark, droll and mystical poet/singer-songwriter as his own thoughtful responses in the course half a century of interviews. Here, in his own words taken from over 50 interviews conducted between 1966 and 2012, is Leonard Cohen On Leonard Cohen.

With a foreword by Suzanne Vega and many original insights from friends and fans, as well as eight pages of photos, this definitive anthology presents Cohen talking candidly about his classic songs, his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil Spector, his affairs, his years in a Zen monastery and his long battle with depression. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it also reveals Leonard Cohen to be as compelling a conversationalist as he is a writer.

‘... Burger’s discerning editorial hand selects those conversations with Cohen that offer insights into his music. For longtime fans as well as newcomers to Cohen’s work.’ - Publishers Weekly
