Markus Zusak - Bridge of ClayBridge of Clay

Markus Zusak

The first few chapters of this vast and beautiful novel were a little hard to get into, and I struggled to orient myself, but then the story opened up into a narrative of such incredible emotional depth. 'Bridge of Clay' is the story of five brothers, and one in particular, who grapple as best they know how with the vicissitudes of life. As I turned the pages, this book quietly found a place on my shelf of all-time favourite reads .
