Nick Cave : Mercy on Me, Paperback / softback Book

Nick Cave : Mercy on Me Paperback / softback

Description

"Reinhard Kleist, master graphic novelist and myth-maker has - yet again - blown apart the conventions of the graphic novel by concocting a terrifying conflation of Cave songs, biographical half-truths and complete fabulations and creating a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World.

Closer to the truth than any biography, that's for sure!

But for the record, I never killed Elisa Day." - Nick Cave Musician, novelist, poet, actor: Nick Cave is a Renaissance man.

His wide-ranging artistic output always uncompromising, hypnotic and intense is defined by an extraordinary gift for storytelling.

Employing a cast of characters drawn from Cave's music and writing, Reinhard Kleist's graphic novel, Nick Cave: Mercy On Me, paints an expressive and enthralling portrait of a formidable artist and influencer.

Kleist captures Cave's childhood in Australia; his early years fronting The Birthday Party; the sublime highs of his success with The Bad Seeds; and the struggles he encountered along the way to self expression.

Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, like Cave's songs, is by turns electrifying, sentimental, morbid and comic - but always engrossing.
