The novel is set in the sixties on the island of Hydra where there was an artistic community. The author lived there as a child as her parent were involved. The main focus, however, is on Leonard Cohen: his writing, his music and his relationship with his lover and muse Marianne. There is passion,creativity, infidelity and conflict. The San Francisco Review of Books called this novel 'a very fine tresure' and the film-maker Nick Brooomfield called it 'beautifully written. Highly recommended.'
