Canongate Books Presents Nick Cave's The Sick Bag Song
Author and singer / songwriter Nick Cave discusses his new book The Sick Bag Song - an exploration of love, inspiration and memory shaped around the events of Cave's 2014 tour of North America. It began life scribbled on airline sick bags during Cave's 22-city tour of North America in 2014. It soon grew into a restless full-length contemporary epic. Spurred by encounters with modern day North America, and racked by romantic longing and exhaustion, Cave teases out the significant moments, the people, the books and the music that have influenced and inspired him, and drops them into his Sick Bag.
One of just three exclusive events worldwide, the evening will also see Cave read from The Sick Bag Song and take questions from the audience.
