An iconic poetry collection from American luminary Leonard Cohen, containing some of his most significant verse

Leonard Cohen wrote the poems in Book of Longing—his first book of poetry in more than twenty years after 1984's Book of Mercy—during his five-year stay at a Zen monastery on Southern California's Mount Baldy, and in Los Angeles, Montreal, and Mumbai. This dazzling collection is enhanced by the author's playful and provocative drawings, which interact in exciting, unexpected ways on the page with poetry that is timeless, meditative, and often darkly humorous.

An international sensation, Book of Longing contains all the elements that have brought Cohen's artistry with language worldwide recognition.

I admit that while the beauty and timeless tenderness of Leonard Cohen drew me in and made me pine for a "Leonard Cohen afterworld/so I can sigh eternally", I never thought to read his poetry. I just purchased this, and while I fansy myself an above average poet and writer, I am truly humbled by this man. It looks like I have a lot of work and catching up to do.
