Leonard Cohen: Now 'Everybody Knows'

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.)

The voice, the words, the emotions he brings with each song ... and here in 2012, he is still perfection to me.
