Okay, this space is just going to become a dumping ground of stuff I learn about Bridge of Clay until the book actually comes out and I read it, die and then come back to fill it with a proper review.

Update 20 Nov: From the Markus Zusak Facebook Fanpage Here (worth regularly stalking btw) Markus posts some excerpts from BOC as per below:


(Markus Zusak's own words)...here's a small piece or two from Bridge of Clay that I revisit regularly and work on:

Markus Zusak could write the iTunes User Terms of Agreement and I'd still read it. so yeah, pretty excited for this one!
Brigid *Flying Kick-a-pow!*
Apparently there have been rumors about this book going around for like three years ... well, guess I'm out of the loop because I hadn't heard about it until now. I'm ashamed of myself because Markus Zusak is one of my favorite authors in the world. So yeah, what's it about?

It's about a boy.
His name is Clay.
He's building a bridge.
And he wants that bridge to be something truly great and miraculous.

I still have no idea when this is actually being published but it's Markus Zusak, the guy who wrote my favourite book and who I generally worship. So I'm willing to wait because I know it will be amazing.

Unless another year goes by without hearing anything - I might not be so patient. Seriously though, I really want this book.

I haven't ODed on Markus Zusak yet, but when this book is out I'm going to have a Markus Marathon. His writing is some of the prettiest I have ever seen.
GIMME.

So. September First. Markus Marathon. Who's with me?

ETA 6/22: Um. New release date. December 31st 20...35? Um. I'm trying to think of something funny to say, but I'm drawing a blank. Mostly, I think they're just pushing their luck, thinking the universe will survive until them. I mean, think of how many times the world will end before then

"It's about a boy.

Teaser seems promising!
Coming from Markus the it probably IS going to be great and miraculous!
The book, that is.. Cant wait!

Markus Zusak better hurry up and finish his book because I need to stitch my heart together after he broke mine in The Book Thief.
