International bestseller

"Brilliant and hugely ambitious... It’s the kind of book that can be life changing."
The New York Times

"... A moving work which will make many eyes brim."
The Independent

The extraordinary #1 International Bestseller - now a blockbuster film starring Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson.

It is 1939. 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 when she picks up a single object, partially hidden in the snow. It is The Gravedigger’s Handbook, left there by accident, and it is her first act of book thievery. So begins a love affair with books and words, as Liesel, with the help of her accordion-playing foster father, learns to read. Soon she is stealing books from Nazi book-burnings, the mayor’s wife’s library, wherever there are books to be found. But these are dangerous times. When Liesel’s foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter in their basement, Liesel’s world is both opened up, and closed down.
