An unforgettable and sweeping family saga from MARKUS ZUSAK,
the storyteller who gave us the extraordinary bestseller THE BOOK THIEF.
The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance.
At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle.
The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?
Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, BRIDGE OF CLAY is signature Zusak.

“GOOD THINGS ARE WORTH THE WAIT: BRIDGE OF CLAY is a deeply moving study of the bonds and breaks of family. I inhaled it in one sitting, and weeks later, I’m still hoping that one day I will be able to write as beautifully as Markus Zusak.” —JODI PICOULT, New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things
“I have a feeling that this family WILL STAY WITH A READER LONG AFTER THE STORY IS OVER.” —CONNIE LIN, Books Inc.
