The office is a large, cold room,
dominated by a camp-bed thoughtfully
placed there by his wife, Susie, and a
100-year-old Steinway piano which was
a wedding present from her parents.
There is an antique desk covered in
bottles of Evian, ashtrays, piles of books
and an iMac, at which Cave is peering,
keen to get back to the task in hand,
which is writing a film script for his
friend, John Hillcoat. It is set in the
outback.
