            The first volume of the long-awaited, near-mythical biography of Nick Cave, by award-winning writer, Mark Mordue. A deeply beautiful, profound, profane and poetic biography of the early formative years of the dark prince of Australian rock 'n roll, Nick Cave. This is his compelli...ng creation story, charting his influences, his milieu, his friends, and most of all, his music, as the child, then the youth, shaped himself as the extraordinary artist he became. As well as a biography of an artist, Boy on Fire is also a fascinating social and cultural biography - a vivid rendering of a time and place and the forces that shape us.

            Bestselling novelist Amanda Prowse knew how to resolve a fictional family crisis. But then her son came to her with a real one... Josiah was nineteen with the world at his feet when things changed. Without warning, the new university student's mental health deteriorated to the po...int that he planned his own death. His mother, bestselling author Amanda Prowse, found herself grappling for ways to help him, with no clear sense of where that could be found. This is the book they wish had been there for them during those dark times. Josiah's situation is not unusual: the statistics on student mental health are terrifying. And he was not the only one suffering; his family was also hijacked by his illness, watching him struggle and fearing the day he might succeed in taking his life. In this book, Josiah and Amanda hope to give a voice to those who suffer, and to show them that help can be found. It is Josiah's raw, at times bleak, sometimes humorous, but always honest account of what it is like to live with depression. It is Amanda's heart-rending account of her pain at watching him suffer, speaking from the heart about a mother's love for her child. For anyone with depression and anyone who loves someone with depression, Amanda and Josiah have a clear message-you are not alone, and there is hope.
