Bad Sex Nominee

From HERE, it is reported that Mr. Cave has been nominated for the Bad Sex Award.

Direct quote from The Guardian's article:
On a shortlist of 10, singer Nick Cave was picked for his second novel The Death of Bunny Munro, about a sex-obsessed door-to-door salesman. "Frankly we would have been offended if he wasn't shortlisted," said Anna Frame at his publisher Canongate.

An Attractive Clumsiness has an article/interview up with Mr. Cave (in which, yet again, someone asks him about his religion or lack of).

Any interview, however, that includes this (below) is worth reading:

"As the phone rings I’m wondering about the ways he might answer it when, suddenly, the ringing stops with a bang; it seems someone has dropped the phone. There’s a succession of loud noises that sound like running and things moving around until Cave eventually speaks: “Ca-can I call you – [aside]: How long will I be? – Can I call you in 15 minutes? Is that alright?” Something about taking or collecting the kids from somewhere. It wasn’t quite the steely greeting I expected. There’s an attractive clumsiness to this notoriously shadowy figure."

Cave and Hillcoat Team Up Again

I LOVE breaking news to you all! I just submitted this to, but here it is for you all!

Empire Online reports that director John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is once again teaming up with Nick Cave. This time, they will be collaborating on a film adaptation of Matt Bondurant's novel, The Wettest Country in the World. Hillcoat stated that the script, penned by Cave, has already been written.

The adaptation, which Hillcoat describes as "Virginia, moonshine, backwoods...", seems as though it will fit right in with Cave's other literary endeavors, such as his novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, and the screenplay for The Proposition. At this point, a cast has not been determined, nor has a film studio picked up the project, but if all goes well with The Road, chances appear good that The Wettest Country in the World will soon enter the production process.

Hillcoat also spoke of possibly turning Cave's second novel, The Death of Bunny Munro, into a BBC or Channel 4 adaptation for television. No word yet on if this will become a real possibility.

Eulogy for a Stache Fanbook Excerpt

I've been busy with midterms lately. Graaaaawr. Hopefully I'll be able to share more lately. Apologies for leaving you all hanging in the N.C. limbo!

Okay, so I said I would share a few bits from the fanbook. This is so those of you who couldn't participate can see part of what I did. I apologize for the blurry scans - it's hard to scan something that thick.

There were 14 people, myself included, who participated. More than I was expecting! WOOHOO! Thanks again to the participants!

Eulogy for a 'Stache Samples

I included a letter than thanked him, etc. Here's bits of the book (by the way, I totally included the Emo Bunny!)
