Summary "The Swedish poet and translator Peter Lindforss first met Leonard Cohen in 1981 on the Greek island Hydra. At a table in a small café, a friendship was born, a friendship that has lasted for more than 25 years. The Man Who Destroyed My Life (the lovingly ironic title choosen by Lindforss and Cohen together) offers a warm personal portrait of Leonard Cohen, while it at the same time outlines a remarkable friendship. One of the many things that makes Lindforss book so intrguing, is Cohen's evident presence in recurrent commentaries by e-mail and his contribution during the writing of the book. The Man Who Destroyed My Life is illustrated with photos and has an introduction to the book by Leonard Cohen himself."
