Format: Paperback
I've been a Nick Cave fan for a while and love reading interviews. When I saw that this book came out, I was a little skeptical because I assumed it was just gonna be a bunch of interviews that I had already read for free online. One day I saw a copy in a bookstore and after leafing through it, I realized that most of this stuff is not on the net. For me, the biggest selling point is the inclusion of "A Man Called Horse" by Antonella Gambotto and "Nick Cave: The Needle and the Damage Done" by Jack Barron. These pieces detail Nick Cave during his most strung out period in the 80's. After reading about them in Ian Johnston's biography of Cave, I had been searching for them on the internet but to no avail. I even considered subscribing to Rock's Back Pages for something like $100. It's really interesting stuff and doesn't show Cave in such a positive light. These pieces and others like them are what inspired NC to write the song "Scum." The rest of the interviews span Nick's entire career up to 2007. It's a really informative and interesting set of interviews.

I have read too much "true confessions" (especially about musicians) created by people who have no clue about the creative force these people are channeling. So, since I'm a big fan of Nick Cave, that book was a major disappointment for me. I'm not interested if the person was stoned out of his mind during an interview, or if any kind of other "indecent" behavior was witnessed. To publish such observations is only to serve the public need for tabloid news. On the other hand we had the ever present pseudo philosophical nonsense some people write down, when they are in the presence of a true genius. So please look some place else for real insight into the artist Nick Cave. I should have known it better when a book title contains the words "true" and "confession" that something might be amiss here.

This book is great! It starts a little harsh, but when it's read through and one realizes what Nick Cave has done in this lifetime, and what he's gone through, one walks away feeling a little less accomplished. He is one of the greatest artists of our lifetime, one of the greatest lyricist ever, and a force to be respected. Not because he can do no wrong, but rather, because through it all; the heroin, the sadness, the press, etc, he has increasingly worked harder and more potently than anyone else.
The book is a collection of interviews and essays written about Nick, throughout his career, and assembled in a way that one can grasp his work with a sense of awe.
I love ya Nick, and thanks for every drop you've shed.

The other reviewers are being generous. It's true, Nick Cave is fantastic and worth everyone's time. But this book isn't. A to Z boring, not because of Cave, but because of the self-indulgent, self-important, me-me-me hackdom of the interviewers, most of whom worked for music industry rags back in the day. Tiresome. Don't waste your money on this, buy a Nick Cave / Bad Seeds album!!

I bought this for my girlfriend who's writing her bachelor essay about Nick Cave's first novel as a info source. As a fan of him, she's loving it: the pictures are great, the interviews are from different year, containing different topics and different thoughts. The only minus of this book is it's hard to use it as a source for the essay, as it doesn't have an index in the back: as only information about the novel is needed (and there's not a lot of it in the book), it's a bit time-consuming to read the whole book to find the pieces needed. Still we recommend it to every Cave's fan out there: it really opens up the mind of the creator, letting you know the personality a lot better than you would from his music, novels and public behaviour.

I liked this book. Slow in areas, but very good interviews and it kind of shows his change in attitude through out the years. Worth the read if you're a Bad Seeds/Grinderman fan. Good stuff.
