Summary
The Death of Bunny Munro recounts the last journey of a salesman in search of a soul. Following the suicide of his wife, Bunny, a door-to-door salesman and lothario, takes his son on a trip along the south coast of England. He is about to discover that his days are numbered. With a daring hellride of a plot The Death of Bunny Munro is also a modern morality tale of sorts, a stylish, furious, funny, truthful and tender account of one man’s descent and judgement. The novel is full of the linguistic verve that has made Cave one of the world's most respected lyricists. It is his first novel since the publication of his critically acclaimed debut And the Ass Saw the Angel twenty years ago
Summary
Bunny Munro knows he is doomed. Even before his wife died, he knew that he was losing his charms and his self-control. Going on the road with his ten year old son seems like a good way for the travelling salesman to lose the nagging feeling that his time is coming to an end. But his usual escape routes of casual sex and drug binges can't rid him of his wife's disapproving gaze from beyond the grave. Or his son's pathetic stare. As the bizarre and increasingly frenzied road trip gets out of control, Bunny finds that the demons he has been trying to keep at bay all his life - decrepit fathers, vengeful lovers, jealous husbands and psycho-killers - have emerged from the shadows to seek their revenge.
