Description

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."
