Markus Zusak speaks to Janet Ellis at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Thirteen years since his multi-million bestseller The Book Thief, Markus Zusak joins fellow writer Janet Ellis for his first Book Festival appearance with his much-anticipated follow-up, Bridge of Clay. In this ambitious portrait of a family, Zusak introduces us to the Dunbar brothers, living and fighting in a house with no parents, and no rules. To find peace and beauty, one brother, Clay, sets out to build a bridge, unaware of the secrets he will uncover. This event was filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
