Nick Cave's career has spanned many artistic disciplines and he is internationally renowned as a singer, songwriter, performer, script writer and novelist. From the 80s Australian post punk group The Birthday Party, to his legendary band Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, `that infamous duet’ with Kylie Minogue and 2006's newly formed band Grinderman with Bad Seeds Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos, Cave has never followed the orthodox approach. His music is steeped in mystery, sensuality, wit and irreverence.
Nick’s writing career began with his debut novel And the Ass Saw the Angel which was published in 1989. His new book The Death of Bunny Munro is published by Canongate. Bunny sells beauty products and the dream of hope to the lonely housewives of the south coast of England. Set adrift by his wife’s suicide and struggling to keep a grip on reality, Bunny does the only thing he can think of: he hits the road, with his nine-year-old son in tow.
