Book Synopsis



The unforgettable, New York Times bestselling family saga from Markus Zusak, the storyteller who gave us the extraordinary bestseller THE BOOK THIEF, lauded by the New York Times as the kind of book that can be life-changing.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY - THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

One of those monumental books that can draw you across space and time into another family's experience in the most profound way. --The Washington Post

Mystical and loaded with heart, it's another gorgeous tearjerker from a rising master of them. --Entertainment Weekly

"Devastating, demanding and deeply moving." --Wall Street Journal

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.



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

[A] gorgeously written novel. --Booklist, starred review

Praise for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
WINNER OF THE NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD
MORE THAN 16 MILLION COPIES SOLD

Brilliant and hugely ambitious. --The New York Times Book Review

Deserves a place on the shelf with the Diary of Anne Frank . . . Poised to become a classic. --USA Today

Absorbing and searing. --Washington Post

Zusak's novel is a major achievement. -People

Zusak doesn't sugarcoat anything, but he makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in Slaughterhouse-Five: with grim, darkly consoling humor. -Time
