    1. Nicholas Edward Cave is an Australian musician, songwriter, author, screenwriter, and occasional actor He is best known for his work in the rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and his fascination with American music and its roots He has a reputation, which he disowns, for singing dark, brooding songs which some listeners regard as depressing His music is characterised by intensity, high energy and a wide variety of influences He currently lives in Brighton Hove in England Cave released his first book King Ink, in 1988 It is a collection of lyrics and plays, including collaborations with American enfant terrible Lydia Lunch.While he was based in West Berlin, Cave started working on what was to become his debut novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel 1989 Significant crossover is evident between the themes in the book and the lyrics Cave wrote in the late stages of the Birthday Party and the early stage of his solo career Swampland , from Mutiny, in particular, uses the same linguistic stylings mah for my , for instance and some of the same themes the narrator being haunted by the memory of a girl called Lucy, being hunted like an animal, approaching death and execution A collectors limited edition of the book appeared in 2007.Cave wrote the foreword to a Canongate publication of the Gospel according to Mark, published in the UK in 1998 The American publication of the same book contains a foreword by a different author.

    2. look we are best friends!okay now it is time to actually review the book. and im having an off day so im not sure what form this review will take, but im writing it and thats what is happening. i was trying to remember the other day where i was the first time i encountered nick cave. not in person, - i remember that quite well. before the above picture was taken i had tried, many years ago, to flirt on him and was rebuffed. REBUFFED! but the first time i heard his music. i remember quite well th [...]

    3. Nick Cave’s The Death of Bunny Monro is a novel about a delusional sex addict/beauty products salesman and his reserved, thoughtful nine year old son in the fateful days after the suicide of their wife/mother. The novel’s quick 278 pages include (without giving away too much, I hope):• At least a dozen references to Arvil Lavigne’s vagina, • The same amount of references to Kyle Minogue’s vagina (and remember, Mr. Cave sang with her a few albums back),• A sex scene between the main [...]

    4. Jesus, how is this even a book. Its like they grabbed the horniest 15 year old boy they could find, gave him a playboy, and told him to try and right a fiction novel. I'm no prude, far from it in fact, but saying "her tits are nice like peaches or something". NOTHING for me. The descriptions are awful, full of "or something" and "or whatever"spending long lengths talking about a street FULL of women. Tell me about one or two hot chicks-their hair, their eyes, their body. Literally writing "she's [...]

    5. After reading this book I can not think of Avril Lavigne without automatically thinking about what her vagina would look like. The "Complicated" singer's cooter will probably forever be a purple elephant to me, and I'll be 90 years old and "Skater boy" will come on the "Good Times Oldies" podcast, or whatever we'll be listening to then, and the question of what her box looked like 60 years ago will jump into my head. Sadly that is probably what is going to stick with me long after all the other [...]

    6. What a difference twenty years makes. Nick Cave’s first novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, which was released in 1989, opens with:“Three greasy brother crows wheel, beak to heel, cutting a circle into the bruised and troubled sky, making fast, dark rings through the thicksome bloats of smoke.”His new novel, The Death of Bunny Munro, released in 2009, strikes a slightly more minimalist note with its first sentence:“I am damned, thinks Bunny Munro in a sudden moment of self-awareness reserv [...]

    7. This needs to be said: “The Death of Bunny Munro” is not a misogynistic novel. I have been tired of hearing about this book from so many people who have clearly not read it in its entirety since it came out three years ago, and that weariness has now grown into homicidal rage.I am a feminist. I’m also female. I’m offended and ashamed to be human on a daily basis due to the inherent sexism that exists rampantly in things I read, see, watch, and hear. This novel is not one of those things. [...]

    8. Wow! Death is too good for this breed of megalomaniac sociopath and his ilk most of the people who should read this book, probably won't.Well done Mr Cave, I like a book that really pisses me off.One hand is clapping, I guess it's my feminine side. The other one is busy wanking off.

    9. i gave this book to a friend after i read it and he said something that stuck with me forever: "this would've been better as a short story."there's a lot at work here - the protagonist is an asshole, addicted to sex and booze and fantasies about the vagina of a canadian pop singer. as a woman, reading this, i was both amused and disgusted at turns. i also felt myself urging bunny munro to "get it together, get it together," and that felt odd, that i wanted to mother this pitiful manis is a book [...]

    10. I have both the book and the audio-book (read by the author himself), and I ended up listening to the audio-book while completing a repetitive manual task.I'm glad I did. Nick Cave's voice and delivery are perfect for the twisted events during the last few days of Bunny Munro's life. Also, the many music interludes are fantastic, and really add to the atmosphere.About the novel itself: Nick Cave is at his best. The man is a genius in creating incredibly compelling and flawed characters and Bunny [...]

    11. In 1994, I was unemployed, had moved back in with my father, and was pondering the imponderable: going back to school. Trapped in the mountains of California, I spent my days pretending to look for a job, usually hiding out at my dad’s house reading books. That was when I read Nick Cave’s first novel, AND THE ASS SAW THE ANGEL. I remember being enthralled by his lush, complex sentences and his stark imagery. Looking back, perhaps it was the right time for me to read a tale of a strange boy s [...]

    12. خب، فکرشو نمیکردم اینقدر سریع بتونم تمومش کنم:دی متن خیلی سرراست و خوبی داشت. بهترین توضیحی که میشه در مورد این کتاب داد، اینه که دقیقا همون حسِ آهنگ های دهه نود و اوایل دو هزار آهنگ های نیک کیو رو داره. فضای سنگین و افسرده، مشکلات اجتماعی و نوعی مالیخوایی خاصی که فقط من توی آهن [...]

    13. A major disappointment.Given that the title makes the ending somewhat obvious, you'd've thought Bunny's journey toward meeting his maker would offer some kind of dramatic tension. You'd be wrong. Character, plotting and setting are weak, and for a tragedy (which I guess we could label the book,) there is no dramatic arc, just a never ending stream of vaginamania and the rampant misogyny of a man who has no demons to confront - he's already dead man walking. Where is the conflict? The tension? Th [...]

    14. What started out promising, ultimately felt so entirely fake. The kid speaks and acts like no 9-year-old I've ever met, the main character was dim and unlikable, although that may be the point, if there was one it was as if Nick had a wisp of an idea for a song, and stretched and rehashed and repeated just to fill up 300 pages - it's obvious his strength lies in lyrical beauty, especially considering he was able to say the same thing time and time again using different and wonderful metaphors - [...]

    15. This book was really sad. It's the story of an aggrieved man who recently lost his wife and wants to find peace with his son, going on a road trip in the process.

    16. Reading Nick Cave is a lot like dating. Before you start: Wow I can't believe I finally have a Nick Cave in my hand! I've been waiting for 2 months until I can physically see the book back on the shelf. Cave's such a talented musician and original poet (great open-mic by the way), this book can't possibly go wrong. P. 1-20: what an exhilarating opening! The description is observant without being trivial, dialogue minimal and the characters more philosophical then what Camus and Sartre combined. [...]

    17. Nick Cave's second novel "The Death of Bunny Munro" is really something. One, it's a tight piece of work that is extremely moving about a middle-aged widow who is a traveling door-to-door cosmetic salesman who has a passion forpussy. Not really women, but just the old in-and-out and then to the next female customer. The main character Bunny is a man totally out-of-control with his life and surroundings. And Cave captures the down spiral in nice strokes on the page. The main drift (and it is sort [...]

    18. *საერთოდ არ ვარ ბედნიერი ამ მომენტში*ჯერ ერთი იმიტომ რომ ხვალ სკოლაა და უკვე ოთხის ნახევარია, მერე კიდევ იმიტომ რომ ძალიან მემძიმა ეს წიგნი და იმოქმედა ოფქორზ, მაგრამ არ მინანია, არც ქეივს გ [...]

    19. Hmmm. Mr. Cave has a knack for writing about the wretched among us. The topics that I love in his music can be a hit or miss when he's writing prose. I deeply loved his first novel, "And the Ass Saw the Angel" even though it was profoundly disturbing and a total bummerfest. Cave's protagonist Bunny Munro is a traveling salesman of beauty products, serial womanizer, and terrible father. I often have difficulty enjoying a book when I can't stand the main character, and that was definitely the case [...]

    20. I am a major Cave fan! I love his music and I think his first novel And The Ass Saw The Angel is a masterpiece! One of the greatest book ever written. This book just makes me sad. Coming from the brilliant mind who gave us ATASTA, The Mercy Seat, The Sorrowful Wife, The Carny and I could go on. Here is a man who can make you laugh and cry at the same time. Who can make you love those no one can love. This book is so below him! It reeks of midlife crisis! And possibly even (though it breaks my he [...]

    21. i think Nick Cave is one of the greatest songwriters of all time, definitely of the 20th century. i loved And the Ass Saw the Angel. i loved Sick Bag song. i did not love this. i just never really connected with it. that's not to say it was poorly written. on the contrary, i thought it was very well written. that still doesn't make it "good". i probably would've plowed through this but i listened to the audio version read by Cave and his narration made it captivating enough to continue on. plus [...]

    22. I was reading an article that asked "Why can't guys write good sex scenes?". Apparently there's a competition for the worst writing of a sex scene, and the majority of the front runners are guys. The article's author listed this book as an example of good sex scene writing by a guy.And I thought, hey, Nick Cave, I know that name. So I didn't think it would be that bad. I'm not a fan, but I know a couple of his songs.So this book. You know how sometimes you get invited along to a theater performa [...]

    23. Nick Cave. Songsmith, Poet, Artist, Screenwriter, Performer--of all his great talents and larger than life artistic abilities novelist seems to be the one area that he just doesn't shine quite so much. And I love Nick Cave. I wouldn't quite say "worship" as many do, but certainly "idolize" is appropriate for my feelings toward him. As an idea "Bunny Munro" is prime Cave material and perhaps would ring with greater resonance and deeper human truth and tragedy as a song, possibly a full album or e [...]

    24. Πρώτο βιβλιο του Νικ Κέιβ που διάβασα και ομολογώ πως πέρα απο το αναμφίβολο μουσικό του ταλέντο, παρουσιάζει και μια συγγραφική διαύγεια που δε την περίμενα. Σίγουρα ειναι αρκετά ώμο και ενίοτε αίσχος αλλά αν δει κανεις πίσω απο το προφανές θα ανακαλύψει κάτι εξαιρετικό. Μ [...]

    25. Following on from his critically acclaimed debut novel, And The Ass Saw The Angel, Nick Cave’s second novel tells the story of Bunny Munro, a traveling salesman who, after the suicide of his wife, takes his son on a road trip around the South coast of England in attempt to forsake his demons and outrun the Devil. As previously stated in my blog entry, "Drinking Panther Piss", this book was the only publication I truly wanted to read this year. I loved And The Ass Saw The Angel, and from what I [...]

    26. Nick Cave deals in dark. It’s his thing. It always has been, and I am guessing it always will be, but in the last twenty or so years, he has learned to wrestle his muse, and has gone from the guy who sometimes (supposedly) wrote the lyrics for his early band (The Birthday Party) in the blood-drenched needle he had just used to shoot up various death drugs to some warped hybrid of Frank Sinatra and Leonard Cohen with serious David Bowie tendencies. By the latter part of that statement, I don’ [...]

    27. I'd been avoiding reading this one, mainly out of fear it wasn't any good and would somehow ruin my appreciation of Nick Cave. It didn't.Bunny Munro, a man with 'the gift' when it comes to women, is left a widower and a single parent following his wife's recent suicide. Regardless of the fact he may have driven his already unstable wife insane with his frivolous ways he fears the circumstances will cripple his 'talent' and decides to hit the road with his young son. He roams the English country [...]

    28. Bunny Munro, travelling priapic salesman of women's beauty products, just can't help himself sampling the customers. His constant infidelity pushes his wife to suicide and yet he still seeks solace between alien bedsheets. Only there does seem to be some guilt tugging at the fringes of his conscience, for she seems to be haunting his performances. And other than an underwritten relationship with his introverted nine year son, (this ain't no "The Road") that is the whole book. There is no motion, [...]


    30. Cinco estrelas, um peso gigante nos ombros e um aperto no peito. Esta confusão de horror e humanidade presente na escrita de Nick Cave arrebatou-me, fez com que lesse este livro de forma compulsiva entre risos e lágrimas e fez com que por vezes me visse obrigada a pousá-lo porque tudo aquilo estava a ser demais para mim. Bunny Munro não é apenas garanhão, vendedor, cadáver, também é estúpido, doente, nojento mas acima de tudo é inesquecível. Agora só me apetece abraçar o Bunny Munr [...]
