Culled from 40 hours of conversations between Nick Cave and Seán O’Hagan, Faith, Hope and Carnage transcends the genre of rock journalism, constituting a work of art in its own right. It is a candid dialogue rich with passionate revelation, fierce intelligence, and philosophical searching about the spiritual forces behind creativity and music. In their sole public conversation in the US at 92nd Street Y, New York, hear Nick Cave and Seán O’Hagan reflect on questions of faith, art, freedom, grief and love, the making of the book in the midst of the pandemic and how the following two years changed their perspectives on creativity and faith, their singular collaborative approach, Nick Cave’s decades as the frontman of The Bad Seeds, and much more.

“Extraordinarily raw . . . Cave has the soft-spoken, knowing voice of a wise man whose youthful excesses inevitably led him to a quiet life of meditation and art.”
Lauretta Charlton, The New York Times Book Review

“Intensely personal . . . one of the most powerful and affecting meditations on grief and loss published in recent years.”
James Cook, ArtReview
