Beautiful Losers by Leonard Cohen

I rescued Beautiful Losers from my local coffee shop community bookshelf last week for one reason: I’m almost definitely going to have to read it for my comprehensive exams when I start my PhD next year. I haven’t read as much Leonard Cohen as I should have, I know, but I still wasn’t too excited about reading this one… until I came across Nick Mount’s description of the novel in his new CanLit history Arrivalwhich describes Beautiful Losers as, and I quote, “the first and so far only Canadian novel to feature vaginal, anal, and armpit penetration by a self-propelled flying vibrator.”

I’m in.
