9780241966570: And the Ass Saw the Angel

'Bible-black humour...enough visitations, portents and religious lunacy to qualify as the second-greatest story ever told' - Elle 'It is as if a Faulkner novel had been crossed with Whistle Down the Wind and then narrated by a stoned blues musician' - Daily Telegraph

About the Author:

Nick Cave was born in Australia in 1957.As a member of the rock band, The Bad Seeds, this, his first novel, quickly became a cult classic.He has also appeared in several films.

From Publishers Weekly:

Australian rock musician, lyricist and actor Cave's first novel is an innovative, if wildly idiosyncratic, tall tale satirizing religious fanaticism. Euchrid Eucrow, despised ungainly son of a trapper father and "slobstress" mother, grows up mute but divinely inspired during the 1940s and '50s in fundamentalist Ukulore, a rural swamp peopled with cartoon-like sinners, tricksters, retardates and imbibers of moonshine. Euchrid--self-styled Monarch of Doghead--heeds a winsome guardian angel, along with talking beasts (the title evokes Balaam's ass), and is obsessed with human cruelty and carnality. The foundling Beth, becoming revered as a child-saint, believes Euchrid is divine; Euchrid slips into her room, and is brutally hunted down by Beth's avengers. The plot, rife with gory atrocities, is relayed through clotted, gutsy prose which ranges from poetic to rabid, and is interspersed throughout with graphs, lists, genealogies and scraps of Scripture. Although Cave's manic effort will not lure traditionalists, it may snare the more adventurous.
