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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It’s been 12 years since Markus Zusak released the international bestseller The Book Thief, but it was worth the wait. Bridge of Clay introduces us to the five irrepressible Dunbar brothers, who are raising themselves after their mother’s death led their grief-stricken father to abandon them. As the boys struggle with loss, grief, and forgiveness, this sprawling Australian saga explores the beauty and violence of life. We were completely captivated by the charming and hotheaded Dunbar family, whom we won’t soon forget.
