Searching a book.....by Leonard Cohen

Post by Giulia » Sun Oct 09, 2011 5:48 pm

Hello Giulia
You may find all (?) non-English editions of "Beautiful Losers" on these two pages:
http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/lcbook5gb.html
http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/lcbook5gb2.html

Unfortunately we have not found any Dutch translation - if there is one, info would be very much appreciated. You could go to local second hand bookshops and ask!
Cheap copies of the English editions are very easy to find at eBay.
http://www.amazon.co.uk also has used copies from UK£ 0.79

More about the plaque at http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/ch-plaque.html
(Note that the names of donators are not carved in the plaque itself - there were far too many - but a list of all participants was printed and given to Leonard.)

--- I have somehow managed to replace Giulia's original questions with my reply!!! She was asking about the Dutch translation of BL and wanted to
know abot our plaque at the Chelsea Hotel. / Jarkko

"Beautiful losers" is translated in Dutch , called "Glorieuze verliezers", published in 1971 by "De Bezige Bij". As far as I know this is the only LC book ever translated in Dutch, besides some poetry. It is now and than for sale at "Marktplaats.nl", related to eBay. I bought one copy recently for just a few Euro's. Good luck :!:

(scroll down a bit to "Het Favoriete Spel" - 1990)
