Summary

By Liel Leibovitz. A biography of the Canadian singer-songwriter, poet and writer. Leibovitz explores how the various stages of Cohen's life, from his Jewish upbringing to his later exploration of Buddhist teachings have transformed him into an enduring international figure, while allowing him to eschew the conventional image of the rock star. In the first episode, he focuses on how the nine-year-old Cohen was profoundly affected by the loss of his father. Read by Julian Barratt and Colin Stinton. From 2014.
