Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This warm and lyrical semi-autobiographical first novel by singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen charts the coming of age of Lawrence Breavman, the only son of a Jewish Montreal family. `Children show scars like medals. Lovers use them as secrets to reveal. A scar is what happens when the world is made flesh. Lawrence Breavman seeks two things: love and beauty. Beginning with the innocent games of delicious misadventure with first love Lisa and the absorbing wanders through Montreal with best friend Krantz, Breavman s tale is a distant echo of `Catcher in the Rye and `Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - injected with 1960s aesthetics and Cohen s unique poetry. As Breavman grows into a young man, the emerging writer continues his quest for beauty and love, finding himself in the arms of Shell and a burgeoning realisation of his own talent for appreciating majesty in the grotesque. Semi-autobiographical, the angst and beauty of Cohen s voice deftly channel the painful confusion of the journey into adulthood, and the friendships, wars and lovers that are our guides.
