We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting an author event with the amazing Markus Zusak!
Markus is the author of five books, including the international bestseller, The Book Thief, which spent more than a decade on the New York Times bestseller list, and is translated into more than forty languages establishing Zusak as one of the most successful authors to come out of Australia.
We will be celebrating his brand new, and highly anticpated book, The Bridge of Clay. Copies will be available for purchase and signing on the night. Join us to hear Markus talk about his new book, inspirations and incredible career.
BRIDGE OF CLAY
Let me tell you about our brother.
The fourth Dunbar boy named Clay.
Everything happened to him.
We were all of us changed through him.
The Dunbar boys bring each other up in a house run by their own rules. A family of ramshackle tragedy – their mother is dead, their father has fled – they love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world. It is Clay who will build a bridge – for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins. He’s building a bridge to transcend humanness. To survive. A miracle and nothing less.
Markus Zusak makes his long-awaited return with a profoundly heartfelt and inventive novel about a family held together by stories, and a young life caught in the current: a boy in search of greatness, as a cure for a painful past.
