Just to let you know, there are five of LC books available in Slovenia, translated into our language. His second novel BEAUTIFUL LOSERS was published in 1996 as LEPI ZGUBLJENCI (translated by Jure Potokar, published by Mladinska knjiga). In 2004 I (Matej Krajnc) translated a huge selection of his poems and songs in a book called STOLP PESMI (Tower of Song, published by KUD France Prešeren). This year three further translations are available as follows:

KNJIGA MILOSTI (Book of Mercy) - translated by Jure Potokar, published by Modrijan
NAJLJUBŠA IGRA (Favorite Game) - translated by Matej Krajnc, published by Modrijan
KNJIGA HREPENENJA (Book of Longing) - translated by Matej Krajnc, published by MIŠ

Regards,

Matej Krajnc, Slovenia

Hi Matej,
we have a Gallery of various editions of Leonard's books, staring at http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/cg-front.html
Looks like the Slovenian versions are not included (except Beautilf Losers)! If you have one or more of those books
and are able to scan the covers for us, please send the information to me at ja@nebula.fi
(Have a look at the gallery to see the information we'd need!)
