Markus Zusak - Bridge of Clay
A decade after the publication of his groundbreaking bestseller ‘The Book Thief’, Markus Zusak has returned with the novel of his career.
Told with even more heart, Bridge of Clay is a complex and intricately woven family saga spanning three generations to culminate in a single miracle: a boy and his bridge.
The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules.
As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge — for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle.
The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?
Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, Bridge of Clay is signature Zusak.
Markus Zusak is the author of the extraordinary international bestseller The Book Thief and I Am the Messenger, an LA Times Book Award Finalist and Printz Award Honor book. He lives in Sydney, Australia.
