I’m Your Man: The Life Of Leonard Cohen

I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen by Sylvie Simmons (Ecco/HarperCollins)

We are delighted to announce the publication of Sylvie’s new book. Not only did it receive glowing reviews, but it went straight to the New York Times bestseller list!

I’m Your Man is the major, soul-searching biography that Leonard Cohen deserves… a mesmerizing labor of love.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“A new gold standard of Cohen bios.”
Los Angeles Times

“This is the bio Cohen long deserved, and it makes every prior Cohen bio practically unnecessary.”
Rolling Stone (four-and-a-half star review)

“An elegant, deeply researched life of the Canadian musician, poet and novelist. […] It’s hard to imagine a better [book] than veteran music journalist Simmons’s work. […] Taking on a looming subject with intelligence and wit, Simmons manages to take the full measure of her man.”
Kirkus (starred review)

“Simmons’ rich, compelling and provocative book… is a star-studded but also frank account of how the music industry really works and, at the same time, a discerning portrait of one especially important musician.”
Jewish Journal Los Angeles
