In the Age of Gold by Eric Lerner( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History effortlessly convinces us, but Fiction has to work so much harder to accomplish the suspension of disbelief: cajoling, arguing, pleading, losing all dignity and shamelessly seducing. If all else fails, Fiction will even break into a soft-shoe shuffle or a Dance of the Seven Veils. Try, if you must, to withstand the wiles of Livia Augusta, the Emperor's Wife
Sweet Jane by Eric Lerner( )

There are lines you don't cross. That's how you live your life. You keep looking down to check the lines and make sure no matter how nuts things get, you're on the right side of the line. Jane believed that. She really did. But in the face of the plaintive, seductive importunings of the men her life: her failed pot-dealer of an ex-husband, her teenage son trying to make sense of his mother's contradictory admonitions, her new husband, a cop who bets the ranch on a horse, based on the look in his eyes, and finally, a guy who robs banks, Jane always seems to find herself careening back and forth

Matters of vital interest : a forty-year friendship with Leonard Cohen by Eric Lerner( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A memoir of the author's decades-long friendship and spiritual journey with the late singer, songwriter, novelist, and poet Leonard Cohen. Leonard Cohen passed away in late 2016, leaving behind many who cared for and admired him--but perhaps few knew him better than longtime friend Eric Lerner. Lerner, a screenwriter and novelist, first met Cohen at a Zen retreat forty years ago. Their friendship helped guide one another through life's myriad obstacles, a journey told from a new perspective for the first time. Funny, revealing, self-aware, and deeply moving, Matters of Vital Interest is an insightful memoir about Lerner's relationship with his friend, whose idiosyncratic style and dignified life was deeply informed by his spiritual practices. Lerner invites readers to step into the room with them and listen in on a lifetime's ongoing dialogue, considerations of matters of vital interest, spiritual, mundane, and profane. In telling their story, Lerner depicts Leonard Cohen as a captivating persona the likes of which we may never see again."--Dust jacket
