Sunday Times Music Book of the Year 2022 Faith, Hope and Carnage is a book about Nick Cave’s inner life.  Created from more than forty hours of intimate conversations with the journalist Seán O’Hagan, this is a profoundly thoughtful exploration, in Cave’s own words, of what really drives his life and creativity.  The book examines questions of belief, 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.  Faith, Hope and Carnage offers ladders of hope and inspiration from a true creative visionary.
