Markus Zusak is the bestselling author of six novels, including <b><i>The Book Thief</i></b> and <b><i>The Messenger</i></b>. His books have been translated into more than forty languages, to both popular and critical acclaim. He lives in Sydney with his wife and two children. An evocative and exquisitely composed coming-of-age story about family, love, tragedy and forgiveness.

Now available in B format, the magnificent and highly anticipated new novel from the author of the international bestseller, <b><i>The Book Thief</i></b>. <i>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.</i>

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 builds 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.

<i>Yes, always for us there was a brother, and he was the one - the one of us amongst five of us - who took all of it on his shoulder.</i>
