A reaction after reading Nick Cave’s new book The Death of Bunny Munro is when three vulgar chapters in, it’s become so disturbing, that it makes you want to read the whole thing. Maybe it’s his dark world charm, his gothic, blood-dripping poetry or the fact that what makes Nick Cave so interesting is, the unknown. As he writes, it’s easy to imagine him becoming the actual characters in his own very writings. The Death of Bunny Munro is his second book in twenty years and follows a line of past albums and side projects that have decorated his history over the past decades.
