The Death of Bunny Munro

Серия: "-"

The Death of Bunny Munro recounts the last journey of a salesman in search of a soul. Following the suicide of his wife, Bunny, a door-to-door salesman and lothario, takes his son on a trip along the south coast of England. He is about to discover that his days are numbered. With a daring hellride of a plot, The Death of Bunny Munro is also a modern morality tale of sorts, a stylish, furious, funny, truthful and tender account of one man's descent and judgement. The novel is full of the linguistic verve that has made Cave one of the world's most respected lyricists. It is his first novel since the publication of his critically acclaimed debut And the Ass Saw the Angel twenty years ago.

Cave, Nick

▪ Australian singer-songwriter, actor, and screenwriter
original name in full  Nicholas Edward Cave 
born Sept. 22, 1957, Wangaratta, Austl.

      Australian singer-songwriter, actor, and screenwriter who played a prominent role in the post-punk movement as frontman for the bands the Birthday Party and the Bad Seeds. He is best known for his haunting ballads about life, love, betrayal, and death.

      Cave and school friend Mick Harvey formed the Boys Next Door in the mid-1970s in Melbourne with the guitarist Rowland Howard, the bassist Tracy Pew, and the drummer Phil Calvert. The band released several records before relocating to London in 1980 and changing its name to the Birthday Party. Known for its ferocious and intense live shows, the Birthday Party quickly earned a cult following and appeared on John Peel's British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC-1) radio program, leading to a record contract with 4AD and the release of their signature album, Junkyard (1982).

      Following the Birthday Party's break-up in 1983, Cave and Harvey went on to form Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in Berlin with the former Magazine bassist Barry Adamson and Einstürzende Neubauten frontman Blixa Bargeld. The Bad Seeds combined the Birthday Party's dark intensity with a passionate exploration of love and the pain it can bring. The band produced 11 studio albums. Its biggest commercial success was “Where the Wild Roses Grow” (1996), a collaboration with the Australian singer Kylie Minogue.

      In the late 1980s Cave published two books, King Ink (1988) and the southern gothic novel And the Ass Saw the Angel (1989). He also cowrote and starred in the film Ghosts … of the Civil Dead (1988), and he acted in Johnny Suede (1991) and a number of films by the German director Wim Wenders. Cave wrote the screenplay and score for The Proposition (2005), winning the Gucci Prize from the 2006 Venice Film Festival.
