Nick Cave appears tonight at Barnes and Noble

Before I post the recap from last night's Rasputina show, I feel the need the call your attention to this event, which starts in less than an hour but sounds well worth dropping everything for. Dark and moody (and needless to say, multi-talented) songwriter Nick Cave will be on hand to read from and discuss his novel, The Death of Bunny Munro, which is just out. My views on artists/celebrities from other disciplines crossing over into fiction are well known, but Cave is a born storyteller and an established novelist (having published 1989's And the Ass Saw the Angel) and those familiar with his prose have told me that his gift for language and morbid humor is no less evident there. He'll hopefully be discussing that gift with Katherine Lanpher, a talented writer and media personality herself, and a family friend of mine from the Twin Cities, a long time ago in another life.

The event starts at 7 PM at Barnes and Noble Union Square,
33 East 17th Street.
