Nick Cave - The Death of Bunny Munro

Tell Me a Story - opinion

Nicholas Edward Cave is an Australian musician, songwriter, author, screenwriter, artist, and sometime actor.

Best known for his occupation as frontman of the rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, he also fronted the group The Birthday Party in the early 1980s, a band renowned for its highly dark, challenging lyrics and violent sound influenced by free jazz, blues, and post-punk.

Nick Cave has also turned his hand to writing. His second novel, The Death of Bunny Munro, is due to hit stores on September 8th but given that it’s a book by Nick Cave, the Australian rocker has given special consideration to its audio counterparts. Two audio versions — a digital audio book and an unabridged CD — are due September 8th.

To say it pisses me off is an understatement. Celebrities should stick to what they do best and leave writing to those who can. Bad grapes I know, but his work will sell just because of his name, not because of the quality. It’s a hell of a struggle for writers to get our name's out there – maybe we should sing shit instead….
