see my friends in high places
I don't know which is which and whom is whom,
they've stolen each other's faces'

'Nick Cave is surely Australia's finest living songwriter' Mail

'He is an Australian artist like Sidney Nolan is an Australian artist - beyond comparison, beyond genre, beyond dispute' Evening Standard
'Cave's lyrics deal with passion on the edge, are peopled with mad bayou preachers, black-hearted lovers and killers. His language is rich, poetic, apocalyptic' Guardian

'Richly poetic creations which live a second life on the page. Essential reading' Vox
