Harry Rasky created the acclaimed documentary The Song of Leonard Cohen and he has now delved into his personal archives and diaries to write this intimate and moving portrait of Cohen. Including previously unseen photos, as well as Cohen's own commentary on his writing and his development as a writer no other book gets so close to Leonard Cohen the writer.Also containing a special bonus chapter, The Dylan Diaries, based on Harry Rasky's notes from an abandoned 1966 documentary project with Bob Dylan that captures Dylan's chaotic creativity at the time.
