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.
