A sweeping story following the five Dunbar brothers through times of grief, love, and anger, Bridge of Clay is a time-jumping, dreamlike exploration of family. * Entertainment Weekly * [A] journey in a unique circumnavigatory style, blending past and present until we reach its heart-wrenching conclusion... The prose sings with spunky originality. * Irish Independent * If The Book Thief is his most famous book, Bridge of Clay is his magnum opus. -- Clarissa Sebag-Montefiore * Guardian * 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 * Markus Zusak crafts an unforgettable saga. * US Weekly * This epic family saga is a sweeping reflection on love and loss etched in vibrant writing, vivid characterisations and heartfelt emotion . . . A book to lose yourself in on long autumn nights. -- Charlotte Heathcote * Sunday Express * Unusual, boisterous and playful * Good Housekeeping * 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 * This book BLEW ME AWAY * Jodi Picoult * Exquisitely written ... A sensitively rendered tale of loss, grief, and guilt's manifestations * Publisher's Weekly US * Bridge of Clay is one of those monumental books that can draw you across space and time into another family's experience in the most profound way. -- Ron Charles * Washington Post * Eleven years after his multi-million selling hit The Book Thief, Zusak has returned with this sweeping and compelling family tale... Give it your time and you'll be repaid with a moving and epic read. * Stylist * Devastating, demanding and deeply moving, Bridge of Clay unspools like a kind of magic act in reverse -- Meghan Cox Gurdon * Wall Street Journal * Bridge of Clay has been more than a decade in the making, and it shows: The characters are clearly loved, and the artistry of language will leave you gasping at times. * New York Times * This vast novel is a feast of language and irony. There is sly wit on every page... it is hard not to fall a bit in love with it. -- Michael McGirr * Sydney Morning Herald * The wait is over. * New York Times * If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show... [its] brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life. -- Alfred Hickling * Guardian * [Zusak] flings his readers straight into the deep end of his new vast, teeming novel . . . Warm and heartfelt . . . This is a tale of love, art and redemption; rowdy and joyous, with flashes of wit and insight, and ultimately moving. -- Kate Saunders * Times *
