    Allegory of the Cave: '20,000 Days on Earth' Spends 24 hours with Nick Cave
    Nick Cave, like Narcissus or Miley Cyrus, is a myth. But he’s a myth who thinks about myths, writes about them, knows how they work, and builds this knowledge into each new layer of the myth he’s becoming. In this he’s like a number of...
