The Song of Leonard Cohen is based on the documentary film Harry Rasky made in 1979, broadcast numerous times on CBC television, Arts & Entertainment, PBS and shown at many film festivals around the world. It is now considered to be one of the best and most intimate portraits of Leonard Cohen. Harry Rasky edited the texts taken from the film and added numerous notes and other personal reminiscences from his long-standing friendship with Leonard Cohen, an intimate friendship that lasted over three decades. The Song of Leonard Cohen also includes many rare photos of Leonard Cohen in Montreal and includes extensive commentary by Leonard Cohen himself on his own poetry and songs. No other book about Leonard Cohen gets so close to the man, his city, his poems and songs, his friends, his background, the many original in?uences
