This is the First Printing of this First Thus Trade Paperback volume. It is in beautiful condition. Leonard Cohen has been known for decades for his poetry and his music and lyrics. He is one of our finest living poets and this volume shows many examples of that. In 'Book of Longing' published in 2007 he produced his first book of poetry in twenty years. He is Canadian by birth and yet his language and artistry have brought him worldwide recognition. This trade paperback is in very near fine condition. Its only flaw is very slight small light spot on the top edge about 3/4" from where it meets the fore edge. Otherwise the book is beautiful. The spot does not detract at all. There are no creases on the spine and no bumped corners. The book is enhanced by many illustrations which can be both playful and provocative. There is dark humor here as well as tragedy and timeless meditative work. The poems in this lovely book were written on Mt. Baldy and in Los Angeles, Montreal, and Mumbai. It was a #1 bestseller when it was published and the book will please anyone who loves poetry and working with words to create a world. Cohen is probably best known for his song "Suzanne" and those who only know him by his music will be delighted by this wonderful book of poetry. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
