Faith, Hope and Carnage
Author: Nick Cave and Sean O'Hagan; read by the authors
This program is read by the authors. Featuring sixteen musical codas and elements from the Carnage, Skeleton Tree and Ghosteen albums, it also includes an exclusive, additional 12-minute conversation between Cave and O’Hagan about the production of the recording.
Faith, Hope and Carnage is a book about Nick Cave’s inner life.
Created from more than forty hours of intimate conversations with Seán O’Hagan, it is a profoundly thoughtful exploration, in Cave’s own words, of what really drives his life and creativity.
The book examines questions of faith, 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.
From a place of considered reflection, Faith, Hope and Carnage offers ladders of hope and inspiration from a true creative visionary.
