Critic Reviews

“It reaffirms Cohen’s mastery in the domain of desire, and devotees will not be disappointed.” (Austin Chronicle)

“Tenderness may have replaced passion, but Cohen’s ability to capture this shift makes it poignant and meaningful. . . . Cohen has taken what his friend Irving Layton called ‘the inescapable lousiness of growing old’ and has given it, in its waning days, a profound romantic dignity.” (Montreal Gazette)

“He’s shown an uncanny knack for expressing the changing Zeitgeist.” (Toronto Star)
