And the Ass Saw the Angel
The full, original text of Nick Cave's classic Gothic novel
Outcast, mute, a lone twin cut from a drunk mother in a shack full of junk, Euchrid Eucrow of Ukulore inhabits a nightmarish Southern valley of preachers and prophets, incest and ignorance. When the God-fearing folk of the town declare a foundling child to be chosen by the Almighty, Euchrid is disturbed. He sees her very differently, and his conviction, and increasing isolation and insanity, may have terrible consequences for them both...
In 2009 Cave released a cut-down version of his novel but this reissue restores the full uncut text, as first published in 1989.
