Christie's auction: Write Me and Tell Me Your Heart: Leonard Cohen's Letters to Marianne

Hi

Eva posted this on the Facebook page of the Hungarian LC Fanclub:
This June, Christie's New York will bring to auction a superb and largely unknown archive of over 50 letters from the acclaimed Canadian poet, singer-songwriter, and novelist Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) to his most famous muse, the inspiration for the song "So Long, Marianne," Marianne Ihlen. Postmarked from Hydra, Montreal, New York, Tel Aviv, and Havana, and written during pivotal years in Cohen's career, these poetic letters brim with both biographical detail and raw emotion, documenting one of the most captivating love affairs of its time as well as the transformation of a young man into a great artist.

Frankly, I’m quite appalled at the thought. Call me old-fashioned but it seems so classless to be auctioning off personal letters. And Leonard’s at that!
