"Book of Longing" is Leonard Cohen's first book of new poetry since
"Book of Mercy" was published two decades ago. It collects Cohen's
poetry written between the 1980s and the present, and also includes
his wonderfully witty and sensuous illustrations, including
numerous playful self-portraits. The illustrations interact with,
and complement, the poetry in unexpected and fascinating ways.
"Book of Longing" demonstrates the range and depth of Cohen's work,
revealing an extraordinary gift of language and visual art that
speak with rare clarity, passion and timelessness.
