This final work from the singular musician and poet gathers Leonard Cohen's last lyrics and poems, excerpts from his notebooks, and his drawings and self-portraits. It is his reckoning with a life lived deeply and passionately, written in a style that is lean but not spare, unabashedly intimate yet also witty, aware, even amused. "This volume contains my father's final efforts as a poet," writes Cohen's son Adam in his foreword. "It was what he was staying alive to do, his sole breathing purpose at the end…. Each page of paper that he blackened was lasting evidence of a burning soul." "Poignant and brave, lit up with flashes of anger, this is a luminous collection and classic Cohen."—Booklist (starred review)

"It's clear that Cohen remained sharp until the very end, and the book, a kind of farewell tribute by the poet-prophet, offers ample evidence of his abiding sense of humor…. What Cohen offered his many fans and followers was the opportunity to partake of the kind of spiritual experience that makes it possible for us to feel, if only for a moment, that we are not alone."—LA Review of Books
