The book comes from graphic novelist Reinhard Kleist who previously wrote a biography of Johnny Cash.
The 328-page book follows Cave from his childhood and through his work with The Birthday Party and The Bad Seeds. According to the singer himself it is “a terrifying conflation of Cave songs, biographical half-truths and complete fabulations.”
“[It’s] a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World,” says the singer, though he clarifies he “never killed Elisa Day.”
