POSITIONS: A LIFE OF LEONARD COHEN By Ira B. Nadel.
Although he has recorded 12 albums, Leonard Cohen was a critically acclaimed poet and novelist long before he wrote his first song. His dark style gives a glimpse into a life filled with restlessness, love affairs and despair, as told by Ira B. Nadel in ''Various Positions.'' Incorporating interviews with friends and associates along with quotations from Mr. Cohen's letters and journals, Mr. Nadel, who teaches English at the University of British Columbia, has written an honest and sympathetic biography. Beginning with Mr. Cohen's childhood in Montreal, Mr. Nadel describes his subject's college years at McGill University and his travels to New York, Nashville, Los Angeles and the Greek island of Hydra. Publication of several volumes of poetry left Mr. Cohen with a sterling reputation but little money; the career shift to singer-songwriter was caused mainly by financial need. In chronicling Mr. Cohen's growing presence on the folk scene of the 1960's and 70's, Mr. Nadel writes that Mr. Cohen's brooding, sexually explicit lyrics were influenced by his bouts of depression, drug use and promiscuity. Yet after a life marked by ''movement, change, reinvention,'' Mr. Nadel leaves Leonard Cohen, at the age of 62, finding serenity at a Zen monastery in Los Angeles.
