Beautiful Losers (original 1966; edition 1993)
Compact | Rate recommendations
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679748253, Paperback)One of the best-known experimental novels of the 1960s, Beautiful Losers is Cohen’ s most defiant and uninhibited work. The novel centres upon the hapless members of a love triangle united by their sexual obsessions and by their fascination with Catherine Tekakwitha, the 17th-century Mohawk saint.
By turns vulgar, rhapsodic, and viciously witty, Beautiful Losers explores each character’s attainment of a state of self-abandonment, in which the sensualist cannot be distinguished from the saint.

The life of an Indian maiden, the course of a homosexual affair, and the tale of an old man are woven together in this bizarre religious epic.
