    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.

    O avtorju

    -Leonard Cohen-

    Leonard Norman Cohen (September 21, 1934 - November 10, 2016) je bil ena najuglednejših in najbolj spoštovanih osebnosti popularne glasbe, ki je s svojimi pesmimi, ki so bliže šansonu kot rocku in v katerih je besedilo vedno pomembnejše od vsega drugega, pa tudi z enkratno izvedbo, na glasbeno prizorišče stopil hkrati z rockom, čeprav z njim nikoli ni imel kaj dosti skupnega. Toda Cohen je bil predvsem pesnik in njegovi nastopi niso bili samo koncerti, ampak praznik besede, ki nas najbolj presune prav zato, ker jo – tako kot v starih psalmih, namenjenih petju in ne prebiranju – poslušamo ob nevsiljivi spremljavi glasbil in ženskih glasov, morda podobno, kot smo jih nekoč v zgodovini poslušali v templjih, sinagogah in cerkvah.
