God is Alive, Magic is Afoot

by Leonard Cohen
£8.99   hardback  Galileo Publishers (2012)

God is Alive, Magic is Afoot by Leonard Cohen This a completely re-designed edition of a book published by Galileo back in 2000.
 
Beautiful Losers, Leonard Cohen's legendary second novel, was described by The New York Times, when first published in 1966, as 'a gorgeously written.....anguished, overwhelming....prose-poem'.
 
In the middle of this book comes a short section beginning with the words 'God is Alive. Magic is Afoot.' The writing that follows is arguably some of Cohen's finest. In this piece he creates a mantra which intriguingly connects God and magic, and leaves the reader to decide where one ends and another begins.
 
In a similar way that his anthem Hallelujah has inspired millions, God is Alive, Magic is Afoot has the ability to take Cohen's audience on a spiritual journey powered by language that seems to touch everyone's experience.
