    One thought on “Nick Cave: A Study of Love, Death and Apocalypse”

    1. Where were the editors (!) when this thing was sent off to be printed??? It's a real mess A lot of factual errors, unnecessary repetitions, and clumsy use of language, as well as rather questionable conclusions being drawn (e.g. the queering of "Brompton Oratory"). This book made a lot of promises, but did not deliver. The only good thing I can say about it is that it is short. A waste of time, imho.

    2. Very interesting read for someone as unfamiliar with the Bible as I am. I enjoyed the analysis but kept getting annoyed with the factual errors - for instance referring to Foi Na Cruz as a "Spanish" song. It's Portuguese! We can agree to disagree on the merits of The Boatman's Call.
