    Title: Book of Cohen
    Author: COHEN DAVID

    This is a story of two Cohens, the famous singer and not- so-famous lifelong New Zealand fan. It spans several generations and locations, from the refugee waves of Europe of the 19th century to suburban NZ in the late 1970s, late-night Montreal and New York and the menacing frontiers of the Middle East.
    Part memoir, part travelogue, part biography, part
    philosophical reflection, Book of Cohen is as stimulating,
    eclectic and surprising as its subject, full of sharp-eyed
    observation and hard-won wisdom. You will enjoy this book,
    even its gaps and silences. After all, as the man himself might
    say, that’s how the light gets in.
    — Jonathan Freedland
    From the Hutt to Tel Aviv, music writing to memoir, David
    Cohen takes an intimate, erudite voyage around that other
    Cohen, the immortal Leonard. Questions of identity —
    Jewishness, lost fathers — are at the heart, the gravelly
    undertow of well-earned weltschmerz always backlit by both
    Cohens’ dry-as-desert-dust humour.
