The Death of Bunny Munro, iTunes Festival, 24 July 2009

Nick Cave will read from his forthcoming novel as part of the Meet the Author strand at this year’s iTunes Festival in the FREEDM Studio at the Roundhouse in Camden on 24th July 2009. The reading will be followed by Nick in conversation with Sean O’Hagan and then by a Q&A.

FREE PASSES:  Canongate has offered Nick Cave Fixes 2 free passes to attend the iTunes Festival event.  Since Debra and I cannot attend, we have given our passes to Simon W., who will attend on our behalf and has kindly agreed to write up the event for us to enjoy. Our other guest is Debra’s long-time friend James.   I hope this clears up any confusion about who we are sending to this event and in what capacity.  Cheers.

  1. good man simon. 🙂 we look forward to your write up. congrats!

    congrats to james also.

    as morgan said, have a wonderful time and i sure hope it is good. 🙂

  2. It’s a shame Camden is not in Melbourne, and it’s a shame that I will be heading interstate that very night to go on holidays… what a great prize!!

  3. 1) My opinion of the multi-media presentation of The Death of Bunny Munro as a publishing trend is that it is one which is ideally suited to an artist such as Nick Cave who works in a variety of media: music, film, literature, soundtracks etc as it combines all of these elements. The videos by Iain and Jane are very effective teasers for the novel and they have proven very popular with fans as they have been screened over the last few weeks. The audio book with sountrack is an ideal vehicle for Nick Cave as it brings together the novel, Nick’s voice and a sountrack thereby combining three of his artistic qualities. I feel that this appoach is likely to be popular for future novels, particulalrly those that can combine multi media qualities of the author/artist.

    2) The question I would ask Nick is “What literary influences have helped to inspire The Death of Bunny Munro and how does this compare to that which influenced And the Ass Saw the Angel
