An unforgettable and sweeping family saga from Markus Zusak, the storyteller who gave us the extraordinary bestseller The Book Thief, lauded by the New York Times as “the kind of book that can be lifechanging.” 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?
Quotes from Bridge of Clay
There are hundreds of thoughts per every word spoken, and that’s if they’re spoken at all.
There were reasons to leave, and reasons to stay, and all of it was the same.
We skip the moments like stones.
