"Carefully weaving the threads of all of his songs and albums through the patterns of his life, Simmons craftily explores the themes that regularly mark Cohen's work: desire, regret, suffering, love, hope, and hamming it up."
"I'M YOUR MAN is the major, soul-searching biography that Leonard Cohen deserves. . . . [It] is a mesmerizing labor of love."
"This is the bio Cohen has long deserved and it makes every prior Cohen book practically unnecessary."
"The challenge in profiling an artist like this is to rise to their occasion and MOJO contributor Simmons...soars. Like Cohen's music and text, she's brutally honest and digs deep to cut to the bone. At times it hurts...but she also hits the funny bone."
"There is a familiarity to much of Simmons's material, the sense of being on the inside, as though the reader were sitting at the table during the conversations Simmons reports, and the overall experience is of a thoughtful celebration of the artist's life....Simmons has deftly narrated Cohen's evolution, bringing the past into the present and reminding us of the breadth of the journey."
"Taking on a looming subject with intelligence and wit, Simmons manages to take the full measure of her man." (starred review)
