Short biography
According to his publisher, Australian author Markus Zusak grew up hearing stories about Nazi Germany, about the bombing of Munich and about Jews being marched through his mother’s small, German town. He always knew it was a story he wanted to tell.
By the age of 30, Zusak had already asserted himself as one of today’s most innovative and poetic novelists. With the publication of The Book Thief, he was dubbed a ‘literary phenomenon’ by Australian and U.S. critics.
