About ‘Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen’


Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen: Interviews and Encounters contains more than 50 features spanning nearly half a century—from 1966 to 2012—from the U.S., Canada, England, Spain, Greece, Australia, and Scandinavia. Some of the pieces come from small publications, others from large media such as the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Approximately 25 percent of the material has not previously been printed anywhere. A few of the print pieces have not previously been published in English and some of the material has not previously been available in any format, including the many reflections and reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this project. The 624-page book features acclaimed journalists such as Mikal Gilmore and Paul Williams,  a foreword by singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega, and eight pages of rarely seen photos.

Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen—which is included in the permanent collection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s library and archives is published in North America in hardcover, paperback, and ebook editions by Chicago Review Press. It has been republished in England, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, and in translated Hungarian, Turkish, Italian, and Spanish editions. Coming next: a Chinese edition.
