Yes Nick Cave the singer, but he comes recommended as a writer...looks a bit weird though. From the blurb, 'A lyrical end-of-the-pier morality tale...A grotesque delight'

(21/07/11) It is was it says, grotesque, but fascinating like watching a road crash happen before your eyes in slow motion - with a drunken bar-room soundtrack in the background! Nick Cave, the husky voicy 'Bad Seeds' singer is also a fine writer, unashamedly rude and non-PC, like Gonzo but with a plot, pathos and deeper meanings about addiction, obsession and family politics. I loved it, and would highly recommend, with a bit of a sex, drugs & rock-n-roll warning :)

I'm taking this along to today's bookcrossing meet-up, I predict that it won't stay on the table for long!

My apologies for keeping this book for so long. I've now read it, and would say that I love his music much more than his plotting. This is not the novel's fault - I think I may just not have been in the right mood for this.
I loved the characterisations though, and the sheer inevitability of it all.

If you are the finder, you can make a journal entry here - you can remain anonymous if you want! I hope you enjoy the book and that you'll get a chance to leave it somewhere else for someone else to find in due course. There is an old (but still very informative) article on bookcrossing to be found here:

Local bookcrossers meet on the second Saturday of each month from 12-1 (ish) upstairs jn Coffee Link on Neptune Marina. New people are always welcome, and you don't need to bring anything. You will recognize us by the pile of books on the table. Tis brings me to the potential danger of such meetups - you may leave with more books than you brought :)
