Nick Cave's Second Novel Set for September Release

Nick Cave's Second Novel Set for September Release
Nick Cave is one of those unbelievable renaissance men, always with a surprising project up his sleeve. And the work keeps flowing with the announcement that The Death of Bunny Munro, his second novel, will finally be in stores this fall.

The book follows Cave's first work of fiction, 1989's And the Ass Saw the Angel, and is set in Brighton, England, the UK coastal town where Cave now lives. As Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting, says, "Put Cormac McCarthy, Franz Kafka and Benny Hill together in a Brighton seaside guesthouse and they might just come up with Bunny Munro."

Bunny Munro isn't Cave's only connection to Cormac McCarthy: the artist also scored the upcoming film adaptation of McCarthy's incredible novel The Road.

The Death of Bunny Munro will be in stores on September 8 courtesy of Canongate. If you'd like to order yourself a copy of the book, you can do so here.
