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.
a very very good book. perhaps a little hard to read at times but a vcery rewarding read at the end of the day. well worth a read as it has moments of great romanticism and moments of poetic genuis. This is a great brooding type of novel that fills you with a deep yearning and really has an effect on you that not many other books do, so have a read.
