Summary "The classic lyrics of Leonard Cohen and what inspired them, as told through interviews by his close friend and fellow musician, legendary singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen (1934 - 2016) created a brilliant body of work that explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships―but few really knew the man behind the music. In Leonard Cohen: All the Answers Are Here, folksinger, documentarian, and broadcaster Malka Marom shares previously unpublished interviews and unseen photos of the much-loved musician, poet, and novelist, interspersed between the lyrics to over 100 of Cohen's classic songs.Gleaned from her interviews spanning her four-decade friendship with Cohen, Marom details Cohen's political activity following the Yom Kippur war of 1973, his connection to Phil Spector, friendship with Bob Dylan, and his absolute devotion as a father, and juxtaposes these intimate details with the songs and lyrics they inspired―many of which have been recorded by a new generation of artists.Leonard Cohen: All the Answers Are Here is the definitive compilation of Cohen's famed song lyrics and the man who wrote them, a crucial addition to to any fan's collection. 50 color and b&w photographs."
