About this title:
Synopsis:
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.

About the Author:
Leonard Cohen was born in Montreal in 1934 and published his first poetry collection in 1956.

Renowned as a singer and performer, Leonard has recorded a number of albums, the most famous being I'M YOUR MAN and THE FUTURE. He lives in Los Angeles.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House US | As imagined by Leonard Cohen, hell is an apartment in Montreal, where a bereaved and lust-tormented narrator reconstructs his relations with the dead. In the hell two men and a woman twine impossibly and betray one another again and again. Memory blurs into blasphemous sexual More . fantasy- and redemption takes the form of an Iroquois saint and virgin who has been dead for all of 300 years but still has the power to save even the most degraded of her suitors. First published in 1996, "Beautiful Losers" demonstrates that its author is not only a superb songwriter but also a novelist of visionary power. Funny, harrowing, and fiercely moving, it is a classic erotic tragedy, incandescent in its prose and exhilarating for its risky union of sexuality and faith. | 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. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 184 gr | 256 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780679748250
