From Library Journal
Dubbed "an unstructured, free-form, irreverent novel" ( LJ 4/1/66) by LJ 's reviewer, Beautiful Losers seemed too strange even for the Sixties. Nevertheless, the book went on to become a cult hit, selling more than 400,000 copies before going out of print. The novel is now being reissued to coincide with the upcoming publication of Cohen's Stranger Music. With its gay relationships, homages to Canadian Native Americans, and search for the meaning of life, this may now find wider acceptance in the mainstream. For public libraries.

"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

Despite the comments above, I believe that the book was a product of its era, the social unrest and questioning of traditional values of the Author's generation, and for that reason, I would recommend reading it.
Of course, the Author's real success lis in his concentration on poetry, lyrics and music.
