The Death of Bunny Munro is the second novel written by Nick Cave, best known as the lead singer of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. His first novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, was published in 1989. The novel deals with Bunny Munro, a middle aged lothario whose constant womanising and alcohol abuse comes to a head after his wife's suicide
Cocksman, Salesman, Deadman; Bunny Munro might not be Everyman, but every man ought to read this book. And read it half in stitches, half in tears. The Death of Bunny Munro is not just a wonderful read, it’s also a heartbreaking one. Cave writes novels like he does lyrics, with strokes of blood and sulphur and lightning. He strikes at the mind and heart and is able to bring his readers to their knees.

The thematic thrust of Nick Cave's second novel echoes the cover of the 2007 debut album from his side project Grinderman, except instead of a masturbating monkey this time the star is a frenziedly fornicating rabbit in human form. The Death of Bunny Munro is the sad, scuzzily hysterical tale of the titular door-to-door salesman, obsessed with sex, sex and more sex (Avril Lavigne's nether regions play a lurid supporting role throughout).
Nick Cave’s The Death of Bunny Monro is a novel about a delusional sex addict/beauty products salesman and his reserved, thoughtful nine year old son in the fateful days after the suicide of their wife/mother. Nick Cave's second novel "The Death of Bunny Munro" is really something pussy. Not really women, but just the old in-and-out and then to the next female customer. The main character Bunny is a man totally out-of-control with his life and surroundings. And Cave captures the down spiral in nice strokes on the page
As in song, Cave the novelist is unafraid to launch headlong into roaring caricature, but while the sex and death quotient is significant, the book also reveals surprising new weapons in his armoury, particularly the tenderness and humanity with which he portrays Bunny Junior, a beacon of love and faith in a ruined world. Fans of Post-Punk singer extraordinaire Nick Cave would do well to explore his novel, The Death of Bunny Munro. Like his recent screenplays and his best songs, Cave creates characters that are at once realistic and fantastic. The novel surely provides insight into the dark art and mind of Bad Seed, Nick Cave. While certainly not for everyone, the dark perversions of Bunny Munro including his fantasies of Kylie Minogue and Avril Lavigne leave the indoctrinated reconsidering the Murder Ballad sung with Kylie, "Where the Wild Roses Grow.
Spanning Nick Cave's entire career, from his writing for The Birthday Party, through highly acclaimed albums like Murder Ballads, Henry's Dream and Abattoir Blues, up to his latest release, The Proposition, The Complete Lyrics 1978-2007 is a must for all. The Secret Life of the Love Song and The Flesh Made Word: Two Lectures by Nick Cave (King Mob Spoken Word CDs). The earliest of the four Gospels, the book portrays Jesus as an enigmatic figure, struggling with enemies, his inner and external demons, and with his devoted but disconcerted disciples. Unlike other gospels, his parables are obscure, to be explained secr.
What propels Bunny Munro on his course towards death is his depressive wife Libby's suicide: returning home after a phone call in which she babbles about the resort's pier burning and a serial killer, he finds she has hanged herself, wearing her honeymoon nightie. This makes selfish, criminally negligent Bunny the sole guardian of their traumatised son, Bunny Junior. Libby has taken her life because Bunny is a sex addict and serial adulterer
Bunny Munro sells beauty products and the dream of hope to the lonely housewives of the south coast. Set adrift by his wife's sudden death and struggling to keep a grip on reality, he does the only thing he can think of: with his young son in tow, he hits the road. While Bunny plies his trade and his sexual charisma door-to-door, nine-year-old Bunny Junior sits patiently in the car exploring the world through the pages of his encyclopaedia. As their bizarre and increasingly frenzied road trip shears into a final reckoning, Bunny finds that the revenants of his world - decrepit.
