This is from the blurb on the back:|
"Leonard Cohen's dry wit and considered opinions have been held in high esteem throughout a distinguished career in music and literature. In His Own Words contains a wealth of wit and wisdom from one of the most articulate artists in popular music..."
There are quite a few previously unpublished, and unknown, photos in the book - a fine mixture of studio and concert shots, a good blend of the formal and informal; as well as several photographs from friends we know - Christof Graf, Yvonne Hakze, Bob Lewis, Lars Hols, and Dave Drewett. Plus snaps of many others mentioned by Leonard - Janis Joplin, Nico, Dylan, Dante, Yeats, Joni Mitchell etc.
