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.

"From the Paperback edition."

"Gorgeously written. . . . One comes out of it having seen terrible and beautiful visions." --The New York Times "Leaves one gasping for breath as well as suitable words. . . . Cohen is a powerful, poetic writer." --Dallas Times-Herald

"Brilliant, explosive, a fountain of talent. . . . James Joyce is not dead. . . . He lives in Montreal under the name of Cohen. . . writing from the point of view of Henry Miller." --Boston Sunday Herald
