The Favourite GameBeautiful Losers

Leonard Cohen’s two classic novels now available together in this collector’s editionThis beautifully designed collector’s hardcover edition brings together Leonard Cohen’s acclaimed novels in a single vol. Is there anything Leonard Cohen can t doI wanted to read this book the favourite game because it s always exciting to read a novel set in Montreal I was expecting very good writing and excellent prose this is the man who wrote Hallelujah after all but I m shocked at how much I enjoyed Breavman s story In the introduction it says that Breavman has a self centered sort of point of view and I thought this would be a little like Catcher in the rye la Montr alIt isn t Breavman is Jewish privileged growing up in Westmount He s intelligent gifted and very horny He and his best friend Krantz are always on the look out for the perfect encounter with a beautiful girl and most of the book recounts Breavman s love affairs with a handful of women from the time he was a boy to the present This came out in 1963 and caused a bit of a scandal I suppose but there is absolutely nothing pornographic in this novel It s a little erotic at times but not than a DH Lawrence book The beauty of this book is really in the way Cohen expresses himself and what he chooses to reveal It s about the experience of being talented but fatherless and without real direction about being Jewish after the Holocaust in North America it s about Montreal the frogs the English class stratification the Mountain even the architecture of Montreal itself It s also about love and sex and being afraid to commit There are beautiful passages in this book Especially those related to Martin the boy genius I think he must have been autistic to whom Breavman identifies strongly Lastly one of the best treats of this little novel is the sharp witty and off the wall dialogue between Breavman and Krantz I really enjoyed it
