God Is Alive, Magic Is AfootBook - 2000
God Is Alive, Magic Is Afoot is a poem/mantra from Cohen's second novel, Beautiful Losers. The piece is an extraordinary flash of optimism, of hope, of the celebration of a life force that is both God and Magic. It remains one of the most accessible pieces of writing from Leonard Cohen and is certainly one of his most beautiful works.
The illustrations have been specially commissioned to complement the text, and the result is not only a beautiful book that every Cohen fan will want to own, but one that will surely bring him to an even wider audience.
