The Death Of Bunny Munro

My osteo asked me what I had lined up for plane flight reading and she had me stumped. I didn't really think about it, I replied and thought about what I could read to while the miles to Buenos Aires away. I remember reading a review for Nick Cave's new novel over the weekend and thinking it sounds good so I bought it on my way to work this morning. Probably got ripped off on the price but I justify it by telling myself I'm supporting Australian literature- despite the fact that Nick actually lives in Brighton, UK these days. Here's a brief description as given on the back of the book; Bunny Munro sells beauty products and the scent of adventure to the lonely housewives of England's south coast. Set adrift by his wife's death, he hits the road one last time- with his young son in tow. Haunted by jealous husbands, his own appetites and a seral killer in a Satan suit, Bunny Munro is a desperate man. And he's going to die. Darkly comic and raw with heartache, The Death of Bunny Munro is a spellbinding story told with style,anger and wit. Stay tuned for 'The Death of Bunny Munro-part 2, The MM review'.

I heard he had put out another book. I await what you give it in review.

I love the cover shot! Great knickers!
Then again, I generally love polka dot anything!
PDV... hee hee hee!

Now I am wondering what the V stands for. All sorts of sordid thoughts are going through my mind!

Margarita Milonguita said...

Look at the cover of the book again. I would say it's fairly obvious...

dam buster said...

Ahh got you now. PDV indeed. never seen a PDV myself. Would like to see one though!
