Press Release

A meditation on faith, art, music, grief and much more - from cultural icon and bestselling author Nick Cave

Faith, Hope and Carnage is a book about Nick Cave's inner life. Created from over forty hours of intimate conversations with Sean O'Hagan, it is a profoundly thoughtful exploration, in Cave's own words, of what really drives his life and creativity. The book examines questions of faith, art, music, freedom, grief and love. It draws candidly on Cave's life, from his early childhood to the present day, his loves, his work ethic and his dramatic transformation in recent years. From a place of considered reflection, Faith, Hope and Carnage offers lad- ders of hope and inspiration from a true creative visionary.

'Illuminating . . . a great deal of beauty in Cave’s descriptions of the “strange reckless power” that comes when the worst has happened . . . if it meets a need for Cave, it also feels like a gift to the reader', Sunday Times

'An extraordinary, uplifting book . . . This is a book you could dip into if you had no knowledge of Cave at all, just to find someone unafraid to ask all the big questions: what is grief? What is forgiveness? . . . Everyday carnage has brought forth a book of hope and freedom and life', Daily Telegraph
