Faith, Hope and Carnage – Nick Cave and Seán O’Hagan. Text Publishing, 2022
Deakin University's Personal Chair, Literary Studies, Lyn McCredden, reviews this recent acclaimed publication , stating...
"Whether you adore or despise Nick Cave, this book offers you a great deal. Far more than the stereotypes of the gothic expatriate, or the drug-loving, post-punk, underground lord, or the strutting songster with the deep, melancholy voice. All these characters appear in Faith, Hope and Carnage, but we meet full on an older, reflective, theologically-probing Cave. For many readers this might sound like challenging, even uncomfortable, territory.
In a long series of discussions across the pandemic period, Cave and his friend Seán O’Hagan conducted a recorded conversation that flows deep, through many sharp bends."
