Description

Popular since its original publication more than 25 years ago, Leonard Cohen's classic book of contemporary psalms is now beautifully repackaged.

 
Internationally celebrated for his writing and his music, Leonard Cohen is revered as one of the great writers, performers, and most consistently daring artists of our time. Now beautifully repackaged, the poems in Book of Mercy brim with praise, despair, anger, doubt and trust. Speaking from the heart of the modern world, yet in tones that resonate with an older devotional tradition, these verses give voice to our deepest, most powerful intuitions.

 

Contributor Notes

LEONARD COHEN's artistic career began with the publication of Let Us Compare Mythologies. Since then, he has published twelve books, including two novels, The Favourite Game and Beautiful Losers, and, most recently, Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs and the #1 national bestseller Book of Longing. He has made eighteen albums, the latest being Live in London. Numerous tribute albums, in many languages, have celebrated his songs.
