Leonard Cohen, one of the most admired performers of the last half century, has had a stranger-than-fiction, roller-coaster ride of a life. Now, for the first time, he tells his story in his own words, via more than 50 interviews conducted worldwide between 1966 and 2012. In Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen, which includes a foreword by singer Suzanne Vega and eight pages of rarely, seen photos the artist talks about Bird on the Wire, Hallelujah, and his other classic songs. He candidly discusses his famous romances, his years in a Zen monastery, and his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil Spector, his long battle with depression, and much more. You will find interviews that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also conversations that have not previously been printed in English. Some of the material here has not been available until now in any format, including the many illuminating reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology.

The United Nations is celebrating 2016's World Space Week from Oct. 4-10th. Check out some of these picture books dealing with the moon, the stars, aliens, and astronauts.
