Markus Zusak - Backstory

Thirteen years after The Book Thief, Sydney-based author Markus Zusak has followed it up with his new novel, Bridge of Clay, a story about a family holding themselves together after the death of the matriarch and the arrival of the estranged father. Mel speaks to Marcus about his unmistakable writing style, the writing process, and how failure of all things can be the most important quality in putting a story together.
