SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES: Brand New Nick Cave Novel Set For Publication This Fall

bunny_munro_cover.jpgThe Death of Bunny Munro is Nick Cave‘s first novel since his critically acclaimed debut, “And the Ass Saw the Angel,” which was first published in 1989. Penguin is releasing a new edition this September to tie in with his new novel. The Death of Bunny Munro will be published in hardcover by Faber and Faber, Inc., an affiliate of Farrar, Straus and Giroux, on September 8, 2009 (ISBN: 978-0-86547-910-4; $25.00). Bunny Munro sells beauty products and the dream of hope to the lonely housewives of the south coast of England. Set adrift by his wife’s suicide and struggling to keep a grip on reality, Bunny does the only thing he can think of: he hits the road, with his nine-year-old son in tow. As their bizarre and increasingly frenzied road trip shears into a final reckoning, Bunny finds that the revenants of his world — decrepit fathers, vengeful ghosts, jealous husbands and horned psycho-killers — have emerged from the shadows and are seeking to exact their toll.
