philippe sands - times literary supplement.

What author or book do you think is most underrated? And why?

Leonard Cohen. Not a spare word written, spoken or sung. Confidently self-deprecating, expressively individualistic, opening of the imagination, humorous.

philippe sands picks his favourite books (in current issue of waitrose magazine).

the world of yesterday - stefan zweig
dark money - jane mayer
just kids - patti smith
the return - hisham matar

and last but by no means least :

book of longing by leonard cohen

philippe says :

over three decades, not a day has passed in which i have not listened to, read or thought about leonard who died last year and remains a guiding spirit.

who could forget his words : "i'm good at love, i'm good at hate, it's inbetween i freeze".
