Bunnies and The Bad Seeds

Nick Cave -- yes, that Nick Cave -- has a new novel coming out today. The Bad Seeds singer has crafted a road-trippy book (think sex, drugs, and ghosts), entitled The Death of Bunny Munro, that, like most stories told at 65 mph, is really about soul searching. As the book's synopsis says:




At turns dark and humane—and with all the mystery and enigma fans will recognize as Cave’s singular vision—The Death of Bunny Munro questions the nature of sin and redemption, and lays bare the imprints that fathers leave on their sons.

Would you really expect anything less from the man behind last year's spiritually infused Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!?

This is Cave's second book. His first, And the Ass Saw the Angel, came out about twenty years ago. Guess he's been a bit busy making music and stuff.

In other rock-meets-lit news, David Byrne has a new book coming out on September 17. More on that then....
