Read Write [Hand]: A multi-disciplinary Nick Cave reader

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


“This is an exceptional anthology, a beautiful piece of art, a serious account of one man’s life work and a great example of the possibilities of new media in the 21st Century.”

– Dr Nathan Wiseman-Trowse, The University of Northampton

Read Write [Hand]: A multi-disciplinary Nick Cave reader is a provocative new e-collection of illustrated essays, accompanied by illustrative online mixtapes, which interrogates Nick Cave’s literary undertones and emphases, false-starts and fixations, achievements and overall credentials. Taking as its starting-point the notion that Cave’s work – as both songwriter and Writer – represents an extraordinarily rich nub of musical-literary intersection, this unique volume considers, amongst other things:

– Cave’s formative years;

– Cave’s bible;

– the cinematic Cave;

– Cave in Berlin;

– Cave and the ballad tradition;

– the hard-boiled Cave;

– Cave and poetic scrutiny;

– Cave’s video narratives;

– Cave as Englishman.

Taking in academia and journalism, polemic and poetry, not to mention photography, stop-motion animation, graphic art and collage, Read Write [Hand] represents an attempt to explore Nick Cave’s interdisciplinarity via its own multidisciplinarity. Utilising eBook functionality, as well as Spotify, YouTube and Silkworm Ink’s stunning new website, it features essays by Robert Brokenmouth and Prof. Nick Groom, poetry by Roddy Lumsden and John Clegg, cover artwork by Steve Wacksman and a new version of Cave’s ‘Bring It On’ by Cypress Grove & the Signifiers.

Sam Kinchin-Smith is Silkworms Ink’s music and non-fiction editor.
