One of the best-known experimental novels of the 1960s,Beautiful Losersis Leonard Cohen’ s most defiant and uninhibited work. As imagined by Cohen, hell is an apartment in Montreal, where a bereaved and lust-tormented narrator reconstructs his relations with the dead. In that hell two men and a woman twine impossibly and betray one another again and again.

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. 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
