Review Quotes"This book is a stunner. Devastating, demanding and deeply moving, Bridge of Clay unspools like a kind of magic act in reverse, with feats of narrative legerdemain concealed by misdirection that all make sense only when the elements of the trick are finally laid out." --Wall Street Journal Markus Zusak crafts an unforgettable saga. --US Weekly In a complex narrative that leaps through time and place and across oceans, Zusak paints a vivid portrait of the brothers trying to regain their balance by keeping their family's story alive. --Time "It blew me away." --Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things "A captivating book with a mighty, fearless heart, BRIDGE OF CLAY is filled with characters to believe in and care about ... achingly moving, delightfully funny, and thoroughly uplifting." --M. L. Stedman, bestselling author of The Light Between Oceans "If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show . . . [its] brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life." --The Guardian "Warm and heartfelt. . . . This is a tale of love, art and redemption; rowdy and joyous, with flashes of wit and insight, and ultimately moving." Times of London With heft and historical scope, Zusak creates a sensitively rendered tale of loss, grief, and guilt's manifestations. --Publishers Weekly, starred review
