"James Joyce is not dead" heralded The New York Times upon the publication of Beautiful Losers in 1966. The novel was written during two complicated and prolonged sabbaticals to the iconic island of Hydra and is structured into three books, each with their own narrator. Beautiful Losers has, in hindsight, been hailed a catalyst for introducing postmodernism into Canadian literature.
