22 år gammal reiste Marianne Ihlen til den greske øya Hydra saman med forfattaren Axel Jensen. Axel skreiv, og Marianne var husmor ­heilt til Axel ein dag forlet henne og den nyfødde sonen deira for ei anna kvinne.

Ein av desse grå dagane er Marianne i den vesle kolonialen på øya og handlar. Då kjem ein mann bort til henne og spør om ho kan tenkja seg å sitja saman med han og nokre venner på terrassen utanfor. Han presenterer seg som Leonard Cohen.

Dette blir starten på ei kjærleikshistorie som varer det meste av 1960-talet, og som tek dei til Oslo, Montreal og New York og attende til Hydra. Undervegs skriv Cohen ein av dei vakraste kjærleikssongar nokosinne til henne.

Boka gir eit medrivande tidsbilete frå 1960-talet og eit portrett av den internasjonale kunstnarkolonien på Hydra.

This is how I described the book on the Files (new page at http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/ihlen.html
Marianne Ihlen was 22 years old when she arrived on the Greek island of Hydra with Axel Jensen. After some time Axel left her and their young son for another woman. One day she meets Leonard Cohen who introduces himself and wants to sit at the same table. This is the beginning of a love story that would last throughout most of the 60's, and take them to Oslo, Montreal, New York, and again to Hydra. During these years Leonard Cohen wrote some of his best known texts and songs. The book is a highly interesting account of the 1960's and the international artist colony living on Hydra.

It was an interview with Marianne and the author, Kari Hesthamar, at todays morning show on TV. Perhaps you can see it here:

http://webtv.tv2.no/webtv/sumo/?treeId= ... d=&itemId=

You'll find it at the end of the show, about 2:47:45. Even if you don't speak Norwegian, you can enjoy her kind smile and also see some photos from the book.
