VARIOUS POSITIONS: A Life of Leonard Cohen - Ira B. Nadel

A Life of Leonard Cohen

By Ira B. Nadel

‘Benignly tolerated’ by Cohen, Various Positions is the closest to an authorised biography we are ever likely to get of one of music’s most intriguing and notoriously reclusive icons. Drawing on extensive interviews with Cohen and his intimates as well as never-before-seen letters poems and song lyrics, the book received instant acclaim on first publication in 1996 and has come to be regarded as the definitive biography of the ‘poet laureate of pessimism’. In the new, updated edition, author Nadel explores the recent resurgence of interest in Cohen, broadening the scope of his unparalleled investigation into the close relationship between Cohen’s life and his art.
