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.

Review:

"A modern-day parable, illuminated with raw lyricism, scraps of tenderness and dark phantasmagoria. Accessible, thrilling and gloriously impolite." (Sunday Telegraph)

"Put Cormac McCarthy, Franz Kafka and Benny Hill together in a Brighton seaside guesthouse and they might just come up with The Death of Bunny Munro. A compulsive read possessing all Nick Cave's trademark horror and humanity." (Irvine Welsh)

"Like one of Martin Amis's early characters, Bunny is an antihero of epic proportions." (Observer)

"Cocksman, Salesman, Deadman; Bunny Munro might not be Everyman, but every man ought to read this book. And read it half in stitches, half in tears." (David Peace)

"Cave makes you shudder and sob simultaneously..." (Guardian)

"Pulses with demented musical energy. The reader is drawn along in Bunny's terrible wake, with Cave's writing style and pitch-black humour giving him an unsettling magnetism." (Financial Times)

"The Death of Bunny Munro is not just a wonderful read, it's also a heartbreaking one. Cave writes novels like he does lyrics, with strokes of blood and sulphur and lightning. He strikes at the mind and heart and is able to bring his readers to their knees." (Neil LaBute)

"Horrifying but terrific." (Independent on Sunday)

"In its own twisted way The Death of Bunny Munro is a plea for love in a world rancid with lust ... Bunny's bad boy charm makes it all too easy to go along for the ride" (Metro)

"This sad, hilarious and filthy novel could do for men's base private thoughts what Sex and the City did for girl chat." (Q Magazine)

Book Description:

A darkly funny and very moving father-son story from the world-famous musician
