Playing Straight Man To Leonard Cohen: The Secret To His Post-2008 Renaissance

I got a little secret
If you promise not to tell

From I’ve Got A Little Secret
By Leonard Cohen

 

In reviewing my notes from the 2014 meeting The Duchess and I had with Leonard Cohen at his home in Los Angeles, I found this unpublished exchange:

 

Me: Since you started touring again in 2008, you’ve become more successful than ever. Is there a secret to your renaissance?

 

Leonard Cohen: Yes

 

Me [expectantly]:

 

Leonard Cohen:

 

Very, very funny, Leonard.
