Waterstones Says

Zuzak’s first novel since The Book Thief is a sweeping, fervent novel for our time. A story of hubris, escape and the drive for progress that both transcends and defines our humanity.

From the author of the extraordinary, global-bestseller The Book Thief comes the story of triumph over extraordinary adversity.

Well over a decade since his The Book Thief hit the shelves to become a true publishing phenomenon, Markus Zusak returns to bring us a story that brims with life and reason for being.

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

This is a young life in search of greatness, seeking the ultimate cure for his memory and tragedy.

Ahead of him lies the bridge, the vision that will save both his family and himself. It’s his attempt to transcend humanness, to make a single, glorious moment. It will be a miracle and nothing less.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show, its slightly chaotic, brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life.' - The Guardian

'This is a tale of love, art and redemption: rowdy and joyous…and ultimately moving.' - The Times
