Bridge of Clay [electronic resource]

Zusak, Markus2018
Here is a story told inside out and back to front:The five Dunbar brothers are living with their menagerie of animals in the perfect chaos of a house without grownups. Today, the father who walked out on them long ago is about to walk right back in.And so the life of Clay, the quiet one with a harrowing secret, is about to change forever.From a grandfather, whose passion for the ancient Greeks still lights up their lives, to a mother and father who fell in love over a mislaid piano, to the present day, where five sons co-exist in a house with no rules, Bridge of Clay is an sweeping portrait of how a ramshackle family, held together by stories and by love, come to unbury one boy’s tragic secret.This tale of a young life caught in a current – a life in search of greatness and the cure for a painful past – is as intense, inspiring and ambitious as only Markus Zusak can be.
