Bridge of Clay is about a boy who is caught in the current of destroying everything he has, to become all he needs to be.

He's a boy in search of greatness, as a cure for memory and tragedy.

He builds a bridge to save his family, but also to save himself.

It's an attempt to transcend humanness, to make a single, glorious moment: A miracle and nothing less.

Markus Zusak

Australian author Markus Zusak grew up hearing stories about Nazi Germany, about the bombing of Munich and about Jews being marched through his mother’s small, German town.

He always knew it was a story he wanted to tell. At the age of 30, Zusak has already asserted himself as one of today’s most innovative and poetic novelists.

With the publication of The Book Thief, he has been dubbed a ‘literary phenomenon’ by Australian and US critics.

Zusak is the award-winning author of four previous books for young adults: The Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe, Getting the Girl, and I Am the Messenger, recipient of a 2006 Printz Honor for excellence in young adult literature. He lives in Sydney.

    I have been reading for 76 years and this is the most beautiful book about life and love and family that I have ever read.
    It will become an Australian Classic.

  • The love of family.

    by on

    It definitely took a while to truely absorb and live with the characters portrayed in this thought provoking novel. For me, Bridge of Clay highlighted the power of love and the commitment we have to each other, not just in a family but in other relationships formed during the path of life. It magnified the fact that every human spirit is capable of adjusting to the winds of change when experiencing loss or misadventure. Bridge of Clay embodies love, strength, endurance and power to face the challenge of living.
