Post by andrea » Thu Oct 13, 2016 2:33 pm

INFO: Next week a new book (17 oct) with stories about Leonard will come out in Italy- available on amazon:

google translation of the article in the link:

The famous blue raincoat is the new book by music journalist Massimo Cotto and writer who, in his own inimitable style, says Leonard Cohen through stories, interviews and testimonies. A multicolored fresco that collects original designs and also makes use of hundreds of interventions of friends, colleagues and great characters, a character who is now in music history.

The famous blue raincoat , published by Edizioni Vololibero, sees the introduction of Vinicio Capossela and a preface by Enrico de Angelis, about the poet and Canadian singer-songwriter, writes: "A nomadic soul, that meditation is a secular way or rather human. Because, among educated metaphors and sacred quotes, Cohen sings the little things of man. So nothing more ground but at the same time more elusive and eternal. Everyone had, metaphors aside, to reflect mirrored in too great questions to understand and process our sorrows and our joys. Perhaps in a tight blue raincoat used, the corner of an equally used cities. A look at the winter passing, to collect the fragments of a friendship over, a quiet solitude of a faithless love that, now, is what it is. "

Looking forward to next week...the new CD of Leonard Cohen ....and the new book of Massimo Cotto about LC :-)
