The Favourite Game
London: Secker & Warburg, 1963. First British edition, preceding both the Canadian and American publication. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Leonard Cohen on the title page. Near fine in an excellent dust jacket with a touch of rubbing and shelfwear. A nice example. "Is there any Canadian novel as compelling and as good as at capturing youthful anxieties as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye? Absolutely. . . . Leonard Cohen's first novel, The Favorite Game" (Globe & Mail). Paul Quarrington said "[t]he Favorite Game is a morally brave book, intimate and unflinching. . . . Leonard Cohen sustains the highest level of poetic craftsmanship throughout," and The Observer added "[h]e is a writer of terrific energy and color, a Rabelaisian comic and a visualizer of memorable scenes." The Calgary Albertan concluded that "[i]t is the kind of book that becomes a law unto itself, simply because there is nothing with which to compare it."
