SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION with exclusive extra behind-the-scenes
material from the author It is 1939. In Nazi Germany, the country is
holding its breath. Death has never been busier - and will become busier
still. By her brother's graveside, Liesel's life is changed forever when
she picks up a single object, abandoned in the snow. It is The
Gravedigger's Handbook, and this is her first act of book thievery. So
begins Liesel's love affair with books and words, and soon she is stealing
from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor's wife's library . . . wherever there
are books to be found. But these are dangerous times, and when Liesel's
foster family hides a Jew in their basement, nothing will ever be the same
again. In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning
author Markus Zusak has given us one of the most enduring stories of our
time. Now a major film from Twentieth-Century Fox starring Geoffrey Rush
and Emily Watson.
