From the Publisher
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.
