Read the beginning of the most anticipated book of the decade, BRIDGE OF CLAY

October 9, 2018

Bridge of Clay, from the author of the global phenomenon, The Book Thief, has been described as the most anticipated book of the decade.

And now it is here.

We’re so excited about it that we’re giving you the opportunity to read the first chapter…lucky you!



About the book:

From the author of the no.1 New York Times bestselling novel The Book Thief.

“An amazing talent in Australian literature” Sunday Telegraph

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, the quiet one, who will build a bridge; for his family, for his past, 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.
