HI !


I overlooked this topic and in the summer of my poems were late. Such a life. It is a great idea. Just my opinion, he was lost among the dozens of threads.

Who knows how can I order this book ? how to order from the Polish ? /simply and inexpensively for transport :D /

I greet you

Paypal is being set up - which will be easier for me as I am in the UK! - and many others I should imagine too. I am waiting to hear back about when it has been set up and I will share any useful info when that happens - unless anyone hears anything before I do and posts it

Just to let everyone know that the book, "Leonard Cohen You're Our Man - 75 poets reflect on the poetry of Leonard Cohen" is now available online with PayPal and credit card. One can find it at <www.publicpoetry.wordpress.com> and by following the link.
Everybody knows, or should, the number of books remaining is dwindling, so order today. Proceeds go to creating the Leonard Cohen Poet-In-Residence program at Leonard's old high school, Westmount High.

I'm going there tonight to sell books at an open house. Hope to see you.
Jack Locke, editor.

I've received my copy too ... there are some lovely poems .. some to make you laugh and some to make you cry.

It's a beautiful tribute to LC and well worth the money (all in a good cause).

Look at the above post if you want to order it and you can read a nice story about one of the poets at

Thanks for the link Judy.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the book too, there are some great words in there.
I am really happy about how the money is being used.
The whole thing has been a brilliant idea in every way.

I actually wrote the little french poem in the middle... ;-) I don't know if many of you have read it, since it's not in english, but let me know if you liked it ^.^

I have just read through this book again this last week or so and thought I would post about how much I have enjoyed it even more this time round.

I know posting on this thread will pop it back up to the top of the list, which is a happy bi-product of me posting, because - (in my humble opinion), it deserves it.

Well anyhows- well done from me to all those who got into it! - though my opinion may not count for much overall, I just wanted to say what a lovely collection this is :)

Who else bought a copy?..and what did you think?
