The time has come… Markus Zusak, the author of the international bestselling novel “The Book Thief”, is BACK and this November, we’re bringing him to Bath to tell you all about his incredible new book.
“Bridge of Clay” is that rare breed of book – a novel with so much heart that it’s sure to be loved by almost everyone! At the book’s core are the five chaotic Dunbar brothers; their parents gone astray they have been left to live, love, fight and grieve in a house bustling with a raucous animal menagerie, named after greek heroes.
Written in a thought-provoking, jigsaw puzzle style, which gradually reveals its missing pieces, “Bridge of Clay” is at once an undulating family history, an emotional rollercoaster and an extraordinary tale of Clay – a tormented boy who takes on the mammoth task of building a bridge…
We’ve already fallen head-over-heels in love with the Dunbar family, with both Mr B’s Emma and Nic devouring and adoring a prepublication manuscript of this brilliant book and other members of the Mr B’s team queuing up to follow suit. Now, we are beyond excited to welcome Markus, all the way from Australia, to tell us more about what is sure to be one of our – and your – favourite books of 2018.
