Bridge of Clay
By Markus Zusak
Bridge of Clay is about a boy who is caught in the current – of destroying everything he has, to become all he needs to be.
He’s a boy in search of greatness, as a cure for memory and tragedy. He builds a bridge to save his family, but also to save himself. It’s an attempt to transcend humanness, to make a single, glorious moment:
A miracle and nothing less.
