Following the release of last year's 'Dig Lazarus Dig', Aussie rockmeister Nick Cave is to publish his second novel on September 8th. 'The Death of Bunny Munroe' is his first book since his debut novel 'And The Ass Saw The Angel' in 1989, which was reissued as a special edition at the beginning of last year.

'The Death of Bunny Munroe' is the story of a door to door cosmetics salesman in the south coast of England, who takes his nine year old son on a road trip after his wife commits suicide.

Meanwhile, having already written the screenplay for 2005's Australian cowboy movie 'The Proposition' Cave has completed his second script, for a film called 'The Death of a Ladies Man'. Wasn't that a Leonard Cohen album?
