5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have book for Nick Cave fans!
Nick Cave is one of the most compelling performers and richly talented visionaries at work in rock today, and indeed for the last 30 years. An authorised biography looms distantly on the horizon, but for fans and students of the dark arts of song (as well as the lighter side), this is an essential collection that nuzzles you right up to the heart of the beast, peeling...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nick Cave Sinner Saint
A decent enough re-hash of vintage Cave interviews but I was left feeling a little disappointed. These are journalists' oppinions of the conents and context of these interviews and therefore subjective. The only person to have true insight is the man himself. Roll on the day when we get an autobiography. Now that would be interesting ....

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have book for Nick Cave fans!, 24 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Nick Cave Sinner Saint: The True Confessions (Paperback)
Nick Cave is one of the most compelling performers and richly talented visionaries at work in rock today, and indeed for the last 30 years. An authorised biography looms distantly on the horizon, but for fans and students of the dark arts of song (as well as the lighter side), this is an essential collection that nuzzles you right up to the heart of the beast, peeling aside the onion skins of myth to expose the soul of a maverick whose inspired craftsmanship has alchemised his inner torment into artistry of the highest degree. These intimate -- and often controversial and combative -- interviews chronicle the changes, working methods and often harrowing back story of the modern-day Dylan-meets-Cohen-meets-Cash, and put the reader right in the room with this droll genius of pain and gallows humour. With superb rare and unseen photos by Cave insider Bleddyn Butcher and a penetrating foreword by the legendarily well-hung Mat Snow, this book roars ahead of the competition to claim the prize as easily the best non-fiction book of the year.
