Leonard Cohen Named 2008 Montreal’s Best Singer/Songwriter, Most Desirable Man, Best-Dressed Man, & Best Local Living Author – But Only #2 in “Closest To Sainthood”

In the 19th Annual Best Of Montreal Readers Poll (2008), voters selected Leonard Cohen the Best Singer/Songwriter, Most Desirable Man, Best-Dressed, and Best Local Living Author. He ranked only #2, however, in the category, “Closest To Sainthood.”1

Update: New York Times Rhetorically Asks “Is Leonard Cohen the New Secular Saint of Montreal?”

I’ll leave the interpretation of these findings to the reader.

I am republishing selected posts from my former Leonard Cohen site, Cohencentric, here on AllanShowalter.com (these posts can be found at Leonard Cohen). This entry was originally posted Sept 16, 2016.
