«Cohen gets the music biography he truly deserves»

Mojo

«Simmons’ clear affection for her subject helps to illuminate Cohen’s motivations and working methods and gives an intriguing insight into his singular mind»

Sunday Times

«The year’s most meticulous, elegant and satisfying rock book»

Independent

«Simmons loves language, hates cliché and takes her time... [she] recreates long-gone incidents with such vigour that you’d swear Simmons was there at the time, sitting in the corner and taking notes»

Guardian

«A well-rounded portrait of the poet-singer…his dry wit finds an echo in Simmons’s phrase-making»
