BOOK OF LONGING

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Leonard Cohen

Poetry & Drama • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Leonard Cohen, narrating his audiobook of poems, provides listeners an opportunity to hear his unique intonation and pensive tone once more. First published in 2006, this collection features Cohen's thoughts and observations on sexual desire, getting older, and finding the truths in his everyday movements. Throughout, Cohen's voice resonates with intimacy. He notes the beauty of the moon in a passing moment; he finds himself musing on life while driving on a California highway; he feels unabated longing for the women in his life. Cohen's recitation reflects the style in which he approached his music. Cohen fans, especially those mourning his recent death, will find this audiobook an extension of his music, with Cohen focusing us on his gentle rhythms and bleak honesty. S.P.C.
