Críticas:

"So Long, Marianne will appeal primarily to [Cohen's] legion of die-hard fans wanting to fill in biographical gaps and read some of his previously unpublished poems. Yet the book's great delight is Hesthamar's sun-drenched evocation of life in Hydra during the years of its transformation into a Bohemian idyll for poets, painters, and musicians from around the world." -- Quill & Quire

"A vivid glimpse of life on the Greek island of Hydra where artists traveled to live, love and escape convention in the heady '60s, with excursions to Norway, Montreal and New York, this thoughtful story of a young woman finding her own way in and out of love is a good read in its own right. The glimpse into Cohen's memories and heart is a particular treat for his fans, and they will be pleased to find several previously unpublished poems." -- Publishers Weekly

"A quirky and unusual addition to the Cohen files, with previously unpublished poems, letters, and photographs." -- Booklist

"While many muses' identities are confined to their role in the art they sparked, Hesthamar's thoughtful and empathetic biography centers on the woman herself, elevating her from an inspiration to a full-fledged human, interesting for her own life, on her own merits . . . Marianne is ultimately a likable and beautifully imperfect protagonist. It's the mark of a wonderful biography that we, too, fall in love." -- Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Richly textured and revealing . . . Readers will be drawn to Ihlen as representative of a young woman's struggles in the changing society and artistic milieu of her time. Her story will provide an additional perspective for those familiar with Cohen's work. Rare letters, poems, and photographs enhance the text." -- Library Journal

"So Long Marianne is an empathetic telling of a love story between a man who would be famous and a young woman trying to make her way in a complicated world." -- Lacombe Globe

"Hestamar sketches Marianne clearly: her insecurities and earned jealousies, her beauty and blandness, her feminine wrestling between art and domesticity . . . The photographs, folded like memories into the pages, show a woman whose eyes are filled with undeniable fire and presence." -- Scene Magazine

"It is an interesting biography about an interesting person who lead an interesting life in interesting places. Reading about life on Hydra was fascinating and more than 35 black-and-white photos complement the text." -- Simco.com Blog

"A bohemian time and place so tantalizingly evoked by the famous snap on the back cover of Songs From a Room, and a mythologized affair that received a lasting benediction from the song that provides the book with its title, are explored in greater depth than the standard biographies allow through interviews with both Ilhen and Cohen. As a considerable bonus, there are some hitherto unseen Cohen poems." -- Montreal Gazette

Reseña del editor:

At 22, Marianne Ihlen travelled to the Greek island of Hydra with writer Axel Jensen. Axel wrote and Marianne kept house, until the day Axel abandoned her and their newborn son for another woman. One day while Marianne is shopping in a little grocery store, in walks a man who asks her to join him and some friends outside at their table. He introduces himself as Leonard Cohen, then a little-known writer.

Thus starts a love story that lasts through most of the 1960s and which takes them to Oslo, Montreal and New York and back to Hydra. Meanwhile, Cohen writes So Long, Marianne,” one of the most beautiful love songs of all time. Peppered with previously unpublished poems, letters, and photographs, So Long, Marianne is an intimate, honest account of Marianne’s journey and a portrait of the international artists’ colony on Hydra in the 1960s.
