Product Details


“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: 

“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
