Bridge of Clay - Markus Zusak 克雷的橋

Markus Zusak: Bridge of Clay
Marcus Zusak:《克雷的橋》

In 2016, Markus Zusak said of his then-unfinished novel, ‘I’ve got to get it done this year, or else I’ll probably finally have to set it aside’. Now, more than ten years after its initial conception, Bridge of Clay has finally been released. Both touching and achingly raw, Bridge of Clay is the coming-of-age story of five brothers who must unravel and then reconcile themselves with the secret behind their father’s disappearance. Zusak will discuss family, honour, greatness and loss: the themes that make up an unlikely yet brilliant bridge. This session will be moderated by Dr. Nicholas Luke. 

2016年,當《克雷的橋》還未完成時,Marcus Zusak曾說:「 我今年一定要寫完這本書,要不我可能終究要放棄它了。」十年前,這本書最初的念頭誕生;今天,它終於面世。《克雷的橋》以一種動人而辛辣的筆觸,故事講述五個兄弟嘗試解開父親失踪背後的秘密。在本節目,Zusak將討論家庭、榮譽、成就和失落等主題:作者在書中以細膩的文筆將這些不同的主旨串連並建成一座不可思議又輝煌耀眼的「橋」。節目將由香港大學英國文學系教授Dr. Nicholas Luke主持。手裡拿著杯美酒,與我們度過節目來到尾聲難忘的一晚吧。
