Twenty years after the publication of his first novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, Nick Cave brings us the final days of Bunny Munro, a salesman in search of a soul.
Set adrift by his wife’s suicide and struggling to keep some sort of grasp on reality, Bunny Munro drives off in his yellow Fiat Punto, Bunny Jr. in tow. To his son, waiting patiently in the car while he peddles beauty wares and quickies to lonely housewives in the south of england, Bunny is a hero, larger than life. But Bunnyhimself seems only to have a dim awareness of his son’s existence, viewing his needs as a distraction from his own relentless pursuit of sex, alcohol and drugs.
When his bizarre road trip shades into a final reckoning, and when England’s small towns seem to become stopping points in a strange, mythical landscape, Bunny realizes that the revenants of his world—decrepit fathers, vengeful ghosts, jealous husbands and horned psycho-killers—lurk in the shadows, waiting to exact their toll.
At turns dark and humane—and with all the mystery and enigma fans will recognize as Cave’s singular vision—The Death of Bunny Munro questions the nature of sin and redemption, and lays bare the imprints that fathers leave on their sons.
The song "Straight To Number One" was taken of the cd "Love" of the greatest hits compilation of a well known french Dj called Claude Challe
People are free then, then, they are generally free, then are they? Well they
don’t look free. Tipping, staggering, with croaked or choking voices, blundering
backward along lines seemingly already crossed, already mapped Oh, the disgusted look on women’s faces as they step backward through a doorway, out of the rain.
Never watching where they are going, the people move through something
prearranged, armed with lies. They’re always looking forward to going places
they’ve just come back from, or regretting doing things they haven’t yet done.
They say hello when they mean goodbye.
