Beautiful Losers

Beautiful Losers

Singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen was also a poet and novelist. BEAUTIFUL LOSERS, his second and last novel, first published in 1966, has become a cult favorite. Essentially plotless and written in lyrical prose much like that of Cohen's songs, the story involves three characters--the narrator, his dead wife, and his best friend, who has also died. The grieving narrator reaches back into his memory, to examine in detail a triangular relationship that involved not only love and passion but an obsession with Catherine Tekakwitha, the 17th-century Native American saint. Immensely popular when it was published, BEAUTIFUL LOSERS is often compared to the work of James Joyce and Henry Miller for its inventive use of language and its often shocking sexual frankness.
