Leonard Cohen, meanwhile, is an equally enigmatic figure, the dark troubadour, suave mystic, and family friend whom Irving views as his true spiritual son and at whose home on the island of Hydra the story finds its inevitable resolution."..."...is about surviving the loneliness of youth...about the wellsprings of art and creativity...the erosion of a celebrated marriage...And it's an unforgettably moving portrait of one of the mad gods of Canadian letters." (describes visits to Hydra and Lesbos) 343p. small illustrations. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. As New/As New.
