Ah, Nick Cave. One of my longest-running crushes. Love him, love him, love him. Did NOT love And the Ass Saw the Angel. Though I haven't read it in 17 years or so, so maybe I'd like it more today? (No, probably not.) I'll give him another shot with this new one. (Have I mentioned that I love Nick Cave?)


This seems like a simplistic view of writing, or at least a false creative dilemma - pieces of fiction should be as long as they need to be, not, say a novel's-worth of pages on one idea. Some ideas make novels, some make shorter things. Maybe he should be writing longer songs/pieces or shorter stories.
