Descrição

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.

Por Publishers Weekly

06/07/2009 – The protagonist of Cave’s pleasantly demented second novel, set in England, is living out a porno: door-to-door lotion salesman Bunny Munro spends his days seducing invariably attractive women, servicing both their sexual and moisturizing needs. His wife’s suicide, though, threatens to derail Bunny’s amorous adventures, as he can’t shake the feeling that he might somehow be responsible. Another new obstacle is the need to look after his nine-year-old son, Bunny Jr. In an effort to escape the creepiness of the apartment he shared with his wife, Bunny takes his son on the road, teaching him the ropes of salesmanship. Meanwhile, a man in red face paint and plastic devil horns accosts women in northern England before a murderous turn sends him journeying south. Bunny’s deterioration from swaggering Lothario to sputtering pity case suggests he is carrying around more guilt than he cares to admit, and his obsessive behavior, while a bit of a stretch, allows for an interesting portrait of modern family dynamics. Cave’s bawdy humor, along with a gallows whimsy that will be familiar to fans of his music, elevate the novel from what might otherwise be a one-note adventure.

Críticas do cliente

The Death of Bunny Munro

Having been for a long time a fan of the grotesque, of the subtle comedy of dark, awkward moments, I feel Nick Cave has masterfully conducted us through the demise of a lost, superficial man, whose occasional attempts at depth are only really consummated upon the act of his death.

Beautifully written, this book is tinged with Cave's darkness, its RYTHM possessing a certain kind of urgency, with beautifully descriptive passages that really suck you into the scenes and minds of the characters; this book stands as a fine exhibit of his storytelling talent.

I read it whilst simultaneously listening to the audiobook, which makes for an incredibly hypnotic experience. I HIGHLY recommend the book, either read alone, but SPECIALLY in conjunction with the audiobook. It made me laugh. It made me cringe. It made me hopeful. It made me sad. It did everything a great story is supposed to do...it made me FEEL.

Thank you Mr Cave. My lifelong "devotion" to you and your art will continue.
