Format: Paperback
This is a masterpiece and one that will strike chords with anyone who has experienced the angst, confusion, despair and ecstatic happiness that accompanies the tortuous journey to adulthood.
This is a semi-autobiographical novel charting the early years of Breavman, an aspiring writer and philosopher through his relationships with his family, best friend and lovers. Cohen's early poetic style is evident throughout. Emotion and humour are meted out in equal measure moving the reader from pain to laughter with remarkable regularity.
As a novel this is, without doubt, the finest rites of passage story I have read. As a book of prose poetry it is incredible. The quality is consistent throughout, and the ending will tear you apart. Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
I had to enter a review for this book, I think it is the most excellent book I've ever read, turned me into an eternal Leonard Cohen fan. Every line is absolutely beautiful and profound, I think if I were to read it 100 times over (which I intend to do!)I would still find lines words and lines that perhaps didn't impact the first time round. It is the most poetic and inspiring book, as are his other books and his music - I think they should have a talking book with Leonard reading it because his voice is sooooooo sexy. Buy this book; it's excellent

I purchased this book as a gift for a friend and so I was wanting quality as well as a realistic price. I would thoroughly recommend it to other people. I was really pleased by the quality of the book I received and ordering it through Amazon was brilliant - good price, was kept informed of the progress of my order and it was despatched swiftly. Way to go!

Format: Paperback
Cohen's writes energetically and with loads of dark humour and insight into the human condition. Reading this book is just like listening to his music really quietly and for a long time. Cohen fans will love it, but the uninitiated may hate it.
