Death of Bunny Munro Covers

As most of you know, Nick's second novel, The Death of Bunny Munro, is scheduled to be released September 1st of this year. You can preorder here for only $16.32! And that's hardcover!

While checking Amazon today, I saw that a new cover (the first one with the drawn rabbit) had been uploaded. I'm not sure if they're both going to be used, or...? Anyway, I have to say, I like it much more than the other one, which I've also included here. The drawing just seems more Cave to me. What do you think?

  2. Oops, I forgot blogger doesn't link automatically...
    er, trying again:

    I like the drawn cover better. With the tongue sticking out :D
    Definitely feels more Cave-ey to me.
    You can also now pre-order several different editions of the audio CD (I'm still not sure what the differences are, though one of them specifically says "unabridged.") I might just wet myself.
    Regular-ish audiobook

    The unabridged one seems to only be on the Canadian Amazon...

    And Canada strikes again with an odd limited edition one...don't know why it's special as of yet :)
    expensive edition

    BTW my pal Caroline found all this info so thanks to her!
    I can't wait to read the book and then listen to the whole thing read by Nick!

  3. Me too, can't wait for the audio book!!! (and the book too, of course).
    And I hope the project of the ATASTA audiobook will happen :)

    Talking about writings of Nick Cave, the draft of the script of Gladiator 2 has leaked...
    pdf, 2.5MB, 103 pages

  4. Oh god. MUST READ that this weekend. Thank you *so much* for sharing! You are so amazing.

    ATASTA audio would be wonderful...and Bunny Munro read by Nick...I am going to die. I know the book will be amazing, but hearing him read it will be bloody intense!

  5. The jacket at the bottom is of the UK edition, the drawn one is the American edition.

    (Sice I work for the UK publisher, I'm biased, but I think our edition jacket reflects the spookiness of the novel!)

  6. Cool, thanks to Canongate books for that info on the book covers!

    And are a queen!

  7. thanks, Canongate Books, for the informations. :)

    Do you have any more informations about the videos of Nick Cave reading excerpts from his new book, that were shown at Limbo's "IRREGULAR " event ?

    Will it be released online for the promotion of the book? I'd love to see it :P

  8. I want to see those videos too, Caroline! That'd be amazing!

  9. Tanks for dis post, kiddo. ;)

    Lookin' good over heah, mm-hmm.

  10. *cracks up* Thanks, NCF Gang! I appreciate the "heah," by the way. ;)

  11. Hi guys, the videos of Nick reading are gradually being released onto the website, - one's up there already. Enjoy!
