Book of Mercy

Publisher: McClelland & Stewart
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.


"An eloquent victory of the human spirit in combat with itself."
— Globe and Mail 

"One of the most honest and courageous attempts in Canadian writing to grapple with ultimate truth."
