Sylvie Simmons
follows Leonard Cohen’s trail, via London and the Greek island of Hydra, to New York in the sixties, where he launched his music career.

From there she traces the arc of his prodigious achievements to his remarkable retreat in the mid-nineties-when on the cusp of marriage to a beautiful actress and enjoying the success of his best-selling album to date, he entered a monastery on a rocky mountaintop above Los Angeles-and finally to his reemergence for a sold-out world tour almost fifteen years later.

Whether navigating Cohen’s journeys through the back streets of Mumbai or the countless hotel rooms where he has stayed along the way, Simmons explores with equal focus every complex, contradictory strand of Cohen?s life-from the halls of academia to the arenas of rock ?n? roll-and presents a deeply insightful portrait of both the artist and the man whose vision, spirit, depth and talent continue to move people like no one else.
