Reading Is Fundamental

Longtime readers of this space know that Nick Cave has been my favorite songwriter for, like, a million years. It's been 20 years (!) since his first novel And The Ass Saw The Angel... but his second novel The Death Of Bunny Munro will finally hit shelves in September!

Click HERE to pre-order it. Umlaut friend in the publishing industry Mr. Sanchez reports that there will also be an audio book (read by Cave!) and a Limited Edition version of the book as well.

Irvine Welsh says: "Put Cormac McCarthy, Franz Kafka and Benny Hill together in a Brighton seaside guesthouse and they might just come up with The Death of Bunny Munro. As it stands though, this novel emerges emphatically as the work of one of the great cross-genre storytellers of our age; a compulsive read possessing all Nick Cave's trademark horror and humanity, often thinly disguised in a galloping, playful romp."
