Read Nick Cave’s endearing letter to a 10-year-old fan

'This secret knowledge you have is a strength that will inspire you to do wondrous things'

Nick Cave has published an endearing response to a 10-year-old fan’s letter on his website.

His site is a portal where Cave takes in questions from the public and shares his responses with his fans. In his latest response, Cave wrote to a 10-year-old named Ptolemy from Launceton, Australia, who was a fan of Cave’s music his whole life. “None of my friends listen to anything cool, interesting or beautiful,” the fan wrote. “How will having your music in my life so early on affect me, and have you got any advice for me?”
