I said there’s nothing left

Novelist, musician and “poet laureate of pessimism” Leonard Cohen is broke and suing his longtime financial adviser, and he wants you to know his forthcoming album is really, really good.

Take an iconic artist, mix in missing millions, hints of tantric sex, a lawsuit replete with other salacious details, and a ruptured relationship with a long-time, trusted associate, and you’ve got the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster. Except in the case of Leonard Cohen, it’s a true tale, with the bizarre twist of a Tibetan Buddhist suing a Zen Buddhist, Cohen.
