As a major and longtime Leonard Cohen fan(atic) I am shocked to read there's a new biography of him that is news to me--and reviewed by Janet Maslin in the NYT tomorrow. Thankfully, the book, by Sylvie Simmons is "the major, soul-searching biography" that Leonard deserves. And yes, we hear from Marianne, andSuzanne, not to mention Judy Collins. A "labor of love." Here's a little Leonard off the page from a few years back, but for him it's not "Closing Time" yet, as evidenced by latest album and tour. (P.S., after writing this I watched episode #9 of the first season of Homeland and sure enough, there's Leonard singing "Everybody Knows" at the closing credits.)
