Here at Text we are all very excited to have secured the ANZ rights to a new novel by music legend and revered story-teller Nick Cave. The Death of Bunny Munro is his first novel since And the Ass Saw the Angel was published to great acclaim in 1989. We will publish in late 2009.
‘The Death of Bunny Munro delivers exactly what you want and expect from the enigmatic and phenomenally talented Nick Cave—a dark and compelling portrait of characters who dwell on the fringes of society and stumble through life on a diet of drugs, chaos and disappointment, but who’ll never give up stumbling which is in part why they fascinate us so much. It’s a funny yet tragic novel, proof all over again that Nick Cave is a writer out of the box. We cannot wait to publish this remarkable novel in Nick’s native Australia where he is a revered icon.’
