Leonard Cohen and I: short stories


The stories begin in the dingy lanes of fly-infested, sodium-inflicted Calcutta. A magician forgets his spell, a mysterious dating app leads a dystopia, blind whores make love to music, student leaders are shot at a curtain call of a proscenium show, and linguists discover a new language by an act of killing — these are tales that readers would believe to be magic, while others, a sheer moment of disbelief. The author has adapted 14 popular songs by Leonard Cohen into short tales. Ranging from SuzanneBird on a Wire, Famous Blue Raincoat, etc. This collection experiments by merging short fiction with magic realism, surrealism, dystopia, and thus ideating hope and empathy amidst the purified darkness for the ones who gamble fiction for war, for lovers who take Murphy’s law for a fictional lie, and who are afraid to sleep as they fear death.
