4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Cave fans
Aside from being simply one of the greatest songwriters now working, Nick Cave has various literary aspirations. In addition to publishing a well-received novel (And The Ass Saw The Angel), he has also put out two books of collected works, this being the first. This contains all of his early poetry (which was heretofore nearly impossible to find), as well as all of his...

1.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A PIECE OF CRAP!
I'm a big Nick Cave fan, and a writer myself, and this book is not worth the paper it's printed on. Save your dough for Nick's cds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Cave fans, December 11, 2001

This review is from: King Ink (Paperback)
Aside from being simply one of the greatest songwriters now working, Nick Cave has various literary aspirations. In addition to publishing a well-received novel (And The Ass Saw The Angel), he has also put out two books of collected works, this being the first. This contains all of his early poetry (which was heretofore nearly impossible to find), as well as all of his lyrics through Your Funeral, My Trial (including unreleased songs), a couple of short, one act plays, and a few other writings (including a piece on how he met Blixa Bargeld.) Cave fans will want this for its convenience of having all of his early lyrics in one place (it contains those from The Birthday Party, Die Haut, and all), and will treausure it for giving them more of Cave's works. This goes to show what a true talent Nick Cave is. Essential for all fans, and, even if you've never heard of Nick Cave, you may well be quite surprised and delighted at the quality of his work held within.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Collection Of Nick Cave's Early Works, April 15, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: King Ink (Paperback)
King Ink is one of the most eye-oppening collections of written artwork done by any living artist. I have been a fan of The Birthday Party and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds for about a year and finding this book was the pinicle of understanding and relating to Nick Cave's writing. A must for any fan. Even if you aren't a fan, this book can still be appreciated in completion.

4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing work from the mind of Nick Cave, September 11, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: King Ink (Paperback)
I stumbled upon this book on a sale rack at a local bookstore, and it is worth much more than what I paid. There is poetry/lyrics, an essay, drama, and drawings. Nick Cave's work may not be appealing to everyone, but I still think that he is an truly gifted artist.
