About the Author

Markus Zusak is the author of six books, including The Book Thief, which spent more than a decade on the New York Times bestseller list, and has been translated into more than forty languages.

Zusak's books The Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe, Getting the Girl, I Am the Messenger, and The Book Thief have received numerous honors including literary prizes and readers' choice awards. In 2013, The Book Thief was adapted to film by Twentieth Century Fox. In 2014, Zusak received the American Library Association's Margaret Edwards Award, for his body of work. On his much-anticipated new novel, Bridge of Clay, Zusak stated, "Clay Dunbar builds a bridge for a multitude of reasons: for his brothers and to honor his parents...but it's also an attempt at greatness. He builds a bridge to save himself, and to make a single, beautiful moment: a miracle and nothing less." Markus Zusak grew up in Sydney, Australia, and still lives there with his wife and two children.

Reviews

"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
