Re: The third novel

Peter, you are right. LC had written a third novel in the seventies. It was mainly about his relationship with Suzanne and he didn't publish it because he thought it was embarrassing and hurting for some people he had mentioned in the novel. At least that's the story he once told in an interview. Ch...

Re: La Llama - The Flame in Spanish translation

Hi, Valentin, the German edition, too, has a different cover: totally black with Leonard´s name in white and "Die Flamme" in red-looks really depressing. Thank God, it´s bilingual, the German translation next to the English original. The texts were translated by 12 different people, so some are very...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Dear Mr Cohen, when I heard the sad news on Friday I didn´t know where to find comfort because for more than 40 years it has always been your words, your voice, your music, your songs that helped me through times of sorrow. But in these days it is too painful to listen to your unique voice. I knew t...

Re: Francis Mus: The Demons of L.C. (new book)

Thank you, Jarkko, for the information. This sounds really interesting.
So, is there any hope for an English translation of the book?

Greetings,

Re: New book: Leonard Cohen - Almost Young

Hi Jarkko,
the front and the back of the German and the English editions are absolutely identical:
the beautiful black and white photo on the front, the photo from the last concerts on the back.
On amazon.de they show it the other way round, but fortunately that´s wrong.
Greetings

Re: New audio CD: early poetry readings

It sounds like a new edition of "Six Montreal Poets. Smith/Cohen/Layton/Scott/Dudek/Klein"
published in 2001 by Folkways Records. There are also 43 poems on this cd that were recorded in 1957.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

Dick, I totally agree with you: a bench in a puristic style that goes well with Greece and Mr Cohen.
And just "Came so Far for Beauty - Leonard Cohen", nothing about the Forum or
the 80th birthday.

Re: Sylvie's book in Italian and Hebrew

Hi MaryB and Roman, the German translation of Sylvie's book is very good. Some of the examples Mark Twain mentioned are obsolete. Today "monster words" are used mainly in administrative language. By the way "Unabhaengigkeitserklaerung" means "declaration of independence" and that's not much shorter ...

Re: Sylvie's book in Italian and Hebrew

Hi Goldin, I don't know about the Dutch book, but I have the German and the American editions. The size of the German book is smaller than the American book. In addition to that the letter in the German book is larger. Along with the fact that German translations are always a little longer than the ...

Re: Dino Soldo not in the tour band

Hi Songwriter, in the French film "Mount Baldy. Spring 96" by Armelle Brusq you can watch LC working on his old Mac in his cabin on Mt Baldy. In one of the older biographies ( I think it was Ira Nadel's) LC told that Apple had given Macs to Canadian writers and had sent instructors to show the write...
