Set adrift by his wife’s suicide and struggling to keep a grip on reality, Bunny Munro does the only thing he can think of: with his young son in tow, he hits the road. To his son, waiting patiently in the car while his father peddles beauty wares and quickies to lonely housewives in the south of England, Bunny is a hero, larger than life. But Bunny himself, haunted by what might be his wife’s ghost, seems only dimly aware of his son’s existence.

When his bizarre trip shades into a final reckoning, when he can no longer be sure what is real and what is not, Bunny finally begins to recognize the love he feels for his son. And he sees that the revenants of his world—decrepit fathers, vengeful ghosts, jealous husbands and horned psychokillers—are lurking in the shadows, waiting to exact their toll.

At turns dark and humane, The Death of Bunny Munro is a tender portrait of the relationship between a boy and his father, with all the wit and enigma that fans will recognize as Nick Cave’s singular vision.

    " One of the grimmest books I've read in a long time, but there's no denying that it drew me in. A fast novel about sex, tragedy and desperation. Nick Cave's way with language translates beautifully to fiction. Just be careful who you recommend this to - Among others, it's not for kids, or for people who are especially upset by descriptions of sexual violence. "

    " Crazy, laugh out loud twistedness "

    " The Death of Bunny Munro is about a door-to-door salesman who drinks too much, makes lewd comments to women, ignores his devoted son, and attempts to have sex with most women he encounters. Not an appealing character to centre a novel around. Author (and musician) Nick Cave provides thoughtful insights into what makes someone like Bunny tick, and creates a compelling enough story to keep me reading to the end. My problem with the novel came from being a long-time Nick fan. When i pictured Bunny in my head, I saw Nick Cave. His crass and distasteful actions became Nick's. And it made me question my devotion to his music! A Cave song came on a random shuffle the other day and before I realized it, I was skipping it in disgust! Hopefully this reaction is short-lived, because I have a LOT of his music that right now is unlistenable. "

    " Loved it. It's like the dodgiest boyfriend you've ever had, only times 10 worse. Get into it folks, this book won't disappoint. "
