Markus Zusak – Bridge Of Clay

The Dunbar brothers’ story is one of complexity, told in reverse. In their house, void of adults, they’ve lived, fought, dreamed, and loved. Now, their long-lost father returns, raising questions about their identities and past. Matthew, Rory, Henry, Tommy, and Clay each bear their own burdens and quirks, in a narrative that unravels inside out and back to front.

Here is a story told inside out and back to front: The five Dunbar brothers are living – fighting, dreaming, loving – in the perfect squalor of a house without grownups. Today, the father who walked out on them long ago is about to walk right back in. But why has he returned, and who have the boys become in the meantime? At the helm is Matthew, cynical, poetic; Rory, forever truanting; Henry, the money-spinner; and Tommy, the pet collector who has populated the house with dysfunctional pets, including Achilles the mule and Rosy the border collie. And then there’s Clay, the quiet one, his whole young life haunted by an unspeakable act. ( 12 CD Set )
