'Achingly moving, delightfully funny, and thoroughly uplifting.' M L STEDMAN, author of THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS 'This book BLEW ME AWAY' JODI PICOULT 'Rowdy and joyous, with flashes of wit and insight, and ultimately moving' TIMES ___ Our mother was dead. Our father had fled Five Dunbar brothers are living - fighting, loving, grieving - in the perfect chaos of a house without grown-ups. This is a family rocked by tragedy and long buried secrets. To understand his family's story, Matthew Dunbar must travel to find three things. A lost typewriter -- A dead dog -- The bones of the snake that killed it. He will learn of a mother who crosses continents for a new home; of a father searching for love in the keys of an old piano; and, finally, of a brother named Clay, who will make the most challenging journey of them all, and change their lives for ever. ___ Readers love Bridge of Clay: ***** 'Page upon glorious page left my heart bruised, but gratefully beating' ***** 'A book rarely touches me so emotionally' ***** 'Original, compelling and richly resonant' 'One of those monumental books that can draw you across space and time' WASHINGTON POST 'This book blew me away' JODI PICOULT 'Devastating, demanding, deeply moving' WALL STREET JOURNAL 'Moving and epic' STYLIST

La nostra recensione

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 *
