Bunny Munro sells beauty products and the dream of hope to the lonely housewives of the south coast. Set adrift by his wife’s sudden death and struggling to keep a grip on reality, he does the only thing he can think of: with his young son in tow, he hits the road.

While Bunny plies his trade and his sexual charisma door-to-door, nine-year-old Bunny Junior sits patiently in the car exploring the world through the pages of his encyclopaedia.

As their bizarre and increasingly frenzied road trip shears into a final reckoning, Bunny finds that the revenants of his world – decrepit fathers, vengeful ghosts, jealous husbands and horned psycho-killers – have emerged from the shadows and are seeking to exact their toll.

A tender portrait of the relationship between a father and a son, The Death of Bunny Munro is a stylish, furious and hugely enjoyable read, bursting with the wit and mystery that fans will recognise as hallmarks of Cave’s singular vision.
