and the ass saw the angel...

Posted to What Are You Reading?





i've been screaming at people to read 'and the ass saw the angel' written by nick cave (yeah, the singer) for what seems like an eternity... 1990, penguin books - i'm fairly sure that it's out of print, but it's definately worth tracking down...

it centres around a mute hillbilly named euchrid eucrow that lives in a junkyard in the deep south of america with his deranged maw and paw, and his subsequent descent into madness... it's full of weird religous overtones, sick humour and a linguistically rich narrative tone.

FIND IT AND READ IT NOW...
