Summary "Two months on the road with Leonard Cohen — a real-life account of the daily fiction surrounding backstage life."

"Leif Bodnarchuk is a guitar technician — a 'roadie' some might say — for the Leonard Cohen band. Join him as he minces inexorably through Europe battling the elements of outdoor concerts, confronting personal demons, and referring to himself in the third person in book descriptions. He has no idea where the narrative will go, no idea how it will end. No ideas at all."

The book is Leif's very personal account of Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas World Tour; it covers the European leg in Fall 2012, 32 concerts from August 6 to October 8.
