Boy on Fire: The Young Nick Cave

by Mark Mordue Author

Bear witness to the story of the dark prince of rock'n'roll in this intensely profound biography, written by award-winning Australian writer, Mark Mordue. As the ultimate creation story of Nick Cave, Boy on Fire follows the life of the famous musician from his time as a young boy to his life as a young man. Each important and life-defining moment that would turn Cave into the extraordinary artist he would become is detailed in this book, including his friends and family, other influences, and, of course, his music. 

This beautifully descriptive story is also a window into the times and places of Nick Cave's life. From the raging rivers of small-town Australia to the ripped wallpaper of the manic punk scene that hit Melbourne in the 1970s, this book will bring to life Nick Cave's story like never before.
