“All These Songs Are For You, D.I.” Leonard Cohen Dedicates I’m Your Man Album To Dominique Issermann

Yes, I was the woman from I’m Your Man, which I would have never thought to mention publicly if some biographies weren’t out. I learned that he [Leonard Cohen] was very depressed when we met on Hydra. I wasn’t at all aware of it, we laughed so much. [Interviewer: How does the story end?] In one fell swoop. Like water flowing from a basin.1
