Thanks for posting these pictures.

As they reach back 35 years to the well-described romance with Leonard, they remind us that, despite severe depression, Leonard must really have understood the mystery of women ( "Because of" in the Dear Heather album ) to have been able to sustain this and so many other romantic interludes.

A biography of Marianne is being released this summer in Finnish which i presume would make facinating reading on the subject, but unfortunately, there are no plans for an English edition.

Maybe a Finnish Forum member could share the author's insights?

Len, Marianne's book was published already in 2008, only in Norwegian.
I have not heard anything about a Finnish translation.
There might be some hope now for an English edition, but nothing has been decided yet.
Let's keep fingers crossed!
