A bonanza year, as long as the quality holds up... I'm trusting it will.

Thank you for the information, Jarkko! Looking forward to Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen. I really hope (one of) the local libraries will buy a copy, so I can read it.

It's nice to see that So Long Marianne is getting a translation. I haven't read it (in Norwegian) yet, but "everyone" says it's a good read.

Hallo Jarkko,
danke für die neusten Nachrichten (Interview von Rosco Beck und die neuen Bücher 2014).
Schade, leider erscheint das Buch (So Long Marianne) von Kari Hesthamar noch nicht in Deutsch.
Liebe Grüße von Karin

Here we have our 8th confirmed book for 2014 (some more not yet listed!)

Leonard Cohen and Philosophy

Edited by Jason Holt
Publication Date: October 14, 2014

Paperback: 288 pages
Publishers: Open Court
Series: Popular Culture and Philosophy (Book 84)
ISBN: 978-0812698565

"From the early years, when he morphed from celebrated poet to provocative singer/songwriter, to his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Leonard Cohen has endured as one of the most enigmatic and profound figures in all of popular music. With his uniquely compelling voice and unparalleled depth of artistic vision, the aesthetic quality and intellectual merit of Cohen's work are above dispute; here, for the first time, a team of philosophers takes an in-depth look at its realsignificance."

"Want to know what Cohen and Kierkegaard have in common? Or whether Cohen rivals the great philosophical pessimist Schopenhauer? Then this book is for you. It provides the first thorough analysis of Cohen from various (philosophical) positions. It is intended not only for Cohen fans but also undergraduates in philosophy and other areas. It explores important neglected aspects of Cohen's work without attempting to reduce them to academic tropes, yet nonetheless it is also useful to academics - or anyone - beguiled by the enigma that is Leonard Cohen."


(Dominique Boile was the first to find it at Amazon. We have another thread about this project at viewtopic.php?f=3&t=33948
