A Rake's Progress: Nick Cave's Death of Bunny Munro

Mark Mordue, The Australian Literary Review, August 2009

IS BUNNY MUNRO Nick Cave's version of Willy Loman with a hard on? In The Death of Bunny Munro the Australian rock 'n' roll singer and sophomore author tells the story of a sex-obsessed travelling salesman whose life is apparently spiralling towards its end. Inevitably, comparisons will be made with Arthur Miller's play Death of a Salesman which premiered precisely sixty years ago in New York City.
