faith, hope and carnage

Musician and writer Nick Cave and journalist Seán O’Hagan discuss their best selling book, Faith, Hope and Carnage. Drawing on more than 40 hours of conversations between Cave and O’Hagan, the book takes readers from Cave’s early childhood to the present day, through his loves, his work ethic and his dramatic transformation in recent years, and examines questions of faith, art, music, freedom, grief and love.

This is an inspiring and hopeful conversation, and a rare chance to hear directly from a creative visionary.

I think songs have a way of talking into the future. nick cave
