Author(s): Reinhard Kleist
In his graphic biography Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, Reinhard Kleist paints an expressive and enthralling portrait of the musician, novelist, poet, and actor. It is, according to Nick Cave himself, "a complex, chilling and completely bizarre journey into Cave World." Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: An Art Book collects Kleist's moody and expressive portraits of the musician and his band, spanning 30 years of writing, recording, and live performance. Kleist also returns readers to Cave's imaginative world with comic book reimaginings of "Deanna," "The Good Son," and "Stagger Lee." Filled with visual delights, this record-size art book is a kaleidoscopic portrait of Nick Cave's wide-ranging career as a storyteller, musician, and cultural icon.
Reinhard Kleist is an award-winning graphic novelist best known for his graphic biographies Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, Johnny Cash: I See a Darkness, The Boxer and An Olympic Dream. He lives in Berlin.
