Publisher's Summary

Bunny Munro sells beauty products and the dream of hope to lonely housewives along the south coast of England. 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 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 ghosts of his world - decrepit fathers, vengeful lovers, jealous husbands and horned psycho-killers - have emerged from the shadows and are seeking to exact their toll. A tender portrait of the relationship between father and son, The Death of Bunny Munro is a stylish, angry and hugely enjoyable listen, bursting with the wit and mystery that fans will recognise as hallmarks of Cave's singular vision.This unabridged audiobook uses a groundbreaking 3D audio-spatial mix, specifically designed for listening on headphones, creating a fully immersive experience for the listener. The 3D and spatialised sound was created by Terence Caulkins, Ryan Biziorek, Anne Guthrie, and Raj Patel at Arup Acoustics.This original soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis was producted and sound-directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.

What the Critics Say

"Put Cormac McCarthy, Franz Kafka and Benny Hill together in a Brighton seaside guesthouse and they might just come up with Bunny Munro. A compulsive read possessing all Nick Cave's trademark horror and humanity." (Irvine Welsh)
"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 his knees." (Neil LaBute)
"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." (David Peace)
