Book of Longing is a critically-acclaimed collection of poetry by the late Leonard Cohen. The audiobook features edited and remastered archival recordings of the author himself, reading the poems in a home environment. The result is a rare, personal experience from one of the western world’s most popular and innovative creative artists.
“It reaffirms Cohen’s mastery in the domain of desire, and devotees will not be disappointed.” (Austin Chronicle)
“Tenderness may have replaced passion, but Cohen’s ability to capture this shift makes it poignant and meaningful. . . . Cohen has taken what his friend Irving Layton called ‘the inescapable lousiness of growing old’ and has given it, in its waning days, a profound romantic dignity.” (Montreal Gazette)
“He’s shown an uncanny knack for expressing the changing Zeitgeist.” (Toronto Star)
