Nick Cave könyvei a rukkolán


Nick Cave - The ​Death of Bunny Munro
_The ​Death of Bunny Munro_ recounts the last journey of a salesman in search of a soul. Following the suicide of his wife, Bunny, a door-to-door salesman and lothario, takes his son on a trip along the south coast of England. He is about to discover that his days are numbered. With a daring hellride of a plot _The Death of Bunny Munro_ is also a modern morality tale of sorts, a stylish, furious, funny, truthful and tender account of one man's descent and judgement. The novel is full of the linguistic verve that has made Cave one of the world's most respected lyricists. It is his first novel since the publication of his critically acclaimed debut _And the Ass Saw the Angel_ twenty years ago.

Nick Cave - És ​meglátá a szamár az Úrnak angyalát
Az ​És meglátá a szamár az úrnak angyalát ószövetségi hangvételű, démoni könyv, az evilági pokolról szól. Valahol Amerikában egy különös vallási szekta, az ukuliták külvilágától elzárt városába - ahol már három éve egyfolytában esik az eső - szélhámos prédikátor vetődik. A sátánnal cimboráló bajkeverő elhiteti a városka lakóival, hogy a katasztrófa egyedüli módja, ha megölik a városka kurváját. Az ukulitákon eluralkodik a lincshangulat, dühük az utcalány szentként őrzött lányába szerelmes Euchrid ellen fordul. Mindenkit elkap az erőszak ösztöne, senki sem veszi észre: a sátán karmai közé keveredtek. Euchrid, a közösséggel szembefordult, különös érzékenységgel, kegyetlen elevenséggel - első személyben elmondva a történteket - tárja elénk az eseményeket: végigélhetjük egy városka civilizációjának, s Euchrid családjának nyomorúságos pusztulását. Az antikrisztus eljövetelét feldolgozó, evangéliumi epizódokkal átszőtt, fantasztikus nyelvi leleménnyel, keserű humorral megírt regény az ezredév eldurvult világának legsikerültebb irodalmi tükörképe. Az ukuliták történetében korunk eseményeire és tévképzeteire, saját életünkre és fenyegetettségünkre ismerhetünk. Nick Cave könyve megrázó, megdöbbentő, lebilincselő, letehetetlen olvasmány.

Nick Cave - King ​Ink
Nick ​Cave is one of the most gifted and most widely discussed figures in contemporary popular music. Founder of the legendary group The Birthday Party, his first solo album was hailed in the New Music Express as "one of the greatest rock albums ever made." He has since gone on to release a steady stream of discs and singles with his present band The Bad Seeds, all of which received international acclaim. He continues to make records and much of his time is also taken up with writing and acting. His film appearances include Wings of Desire, directed by Wim Wenders, and the controversial prison film Ghost of the Civil Dead.

Nick Cave - And ​the Ass Saw the Angel
Cave's ​only novel to date takes on the southern gothic in this bizarre baroque tale. Born mute to a drunken mother and a demented father, tortured Euchrid Eucrow finds more compassion in the family mule than in his fellow men. But he alone will grasp the cruel fate of Cosey Mo, the beautiful young prostitute in the pink caravan on Hooper's Hill. And it is Euchrid, spiraling ever deeper into his mad angelic vision, who will ultimately redeem both the town and its people. 'Surprising, remarkable.' - The Atlanta Journal

Nick Cave - La ​muerte de Bunny Munro
Una ​novela tan inclasificable como portentosa, un auténtico regalo literario. Bunny Munro vende cosméticos puerta a puerta y aprovecha su actividad para seducir y desplumar a todas las mujeres solitarias que se le ponen a tiro. Cada una de sus jornadas por la costa meridional inglesa es una expedición delirante movida por su lascivia y lastrada por la presencia de su hijo de nueve años, al que no puede dejar con nadie desde que su madre se suicidara. El día a día de Bunny, acompañado de Bunny Jr., es una continua sucesión de escenas surrealistas salpicada por todos los oscuros placeres que permítese tan excéntrico vendedor de cosméticos. Juntos caminarán hacia un final tragicómico y convulso, el único colofón posible a su existencia. La muerte de Bunny Munro es una auténtica maravilla literaria, más allá del interés que pueda despertar la figura, poliédrica y fascinante, de su autor. "Bunny es un antihéroe de proporciones épicas, un alcohólico decrépito, una mancha de nicotina, un monstruo constantemente alimentado de cocaína en busca de una aventura priápica o de lo que él denomina, en un momento de lirismo no atípico, "el jodido Valhalla de los coños"." Sean O'Hagan, The Guardian "Cave bebe de estilistas como Nabokov o John Updike, pero en la crudeza, las resacas y la obsesión por el sexo del personaje que ha creado resuenan las historias de Bukowski." El País "Príapo, vendedor, muerto; quizá Bunny Muro no sea un hombre cualquiera, pero todos los hombres deberían leer este libro. Deberán leerlo entre lágrimas y puntos de sutura." David Peace "La muerte de Bunny Munro no solo es una lectura maravillosa, sino también desgarradora. Cave escribe sus novelas igual que las letras de sus canciones, a golpes de sangre, azufre y rayos. Ataca al corazón y a la mente, es capaz de poner a sus lectores de rodillas." Neil Labute "En esta novela lo verdaderamente importante no son las tesis de Cave, sino la calidad de la prosa y esa combinación magistral de comedia negra y sentimiento." Matt Thorne, Independent "Nick Cave vivirá eternamente porque tiene al diablo aterrorizado." Rolling Stone

Nick Cave - Bunny ​Munro halála
Életének ​monoton lélektelenségét egy nap családi tragédia robbantja szét, és ezzel kezdetét veszi különös pokolra szállása. Bunny kénytelen magával vinni vigéckörútjaira kisfiát, és ezzel valóban pokoli kalandok sorozata veszi kezdetét, melyek során mérlegre kerül kapcsolata a fiával, feleségével, apjával - szinte mindenkivel, akit ismer. Az események kérlelhetetlen, ördögi láncolata hol kísérteties, hol szívbemarkoló, hol szórakoztató jelenetekben bontakozik ki, és a feszültséget csak fokozzák az egyre szaporodó baljós előjelek, amelyek mintha Bunny végzetét vetítenék előre.
