Required Reading: Rock Writers

-A few days ago, Gawker gave us an early look at aging rocker Nick Cave's new novel. Cave is apparently one of several musicians who have recently decided to write books, with Liz Phair and Class Act All Star Ryan Adams among the others.
-While we are too young to truly appreciate his work with the Bad Seeds, Cave has published several books and recently made an appearance in one of the best films of last year, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. In addition to appearing in the above scene, Cave penned the movie's stellar soundtrack.
-As for Ryan Adams, his new book Infinity Blues can be pre-ordered here, and we can all breathe easy because his blog is once again up and running.
