Read full description of the books Als honden huilen:Cameron Wolfe woont nog thuis met zijn ouders, zijn broer Ruben en zijn zus Sarah. Cameron kijkt op tegen zijn broer, die elke week een nieuwe vriendin lijkt te hebben.
Als Octavia haar intrede doet in huize Wolfe, begrijpt Cameron niet hoe zijn broer zo’n lief meisje heeft kunnen inpalmen. Maar als Ruben haar dumpt, krijgt Cameron zijn kans. Octavia geeft hem de moed de confrontatie aan te gaan met zichzelf en zijn demonen. Tegenover haar wil hij bewijzen dat er niets mooiers is dan een underdog die opkomt voor zichzelf…
Read information about the authorMarkus Zusak was born in 1975 and is the author of five books, including the international bestseller, The Book Thief , which is translated into more than forty languages. First released in 2005, The Book Thief has spent more than a decade on the New York Times bestseller list, and still remains there to this day.
His first three books, The Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe and When Dogs Cry (also known as Getting the Girl) , released between 1999 and 2001, were all published internationally and garnered a number of awards and honours in his native Australia and the USA.
The Messenger (or I am the Messenger ), published in 2002, won the 2003 Australian Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Award (Older Readers) and the 2003 NSW Premier's Literary Award (Ethel Turner Prize), as well as receiving a Printz Honour in America. It also won numerous national readers choice awards across Europe, including, in 2007, the highly regarded Deutscher Jugendliteratur Jugendjury prize in Germany, which he won again for The Book Thief in 2010.
It is The Book Thief , however, that has established Markus Zusak as one of the most successful authors to come out of Australia. To date, The Book Thief has held the number one position at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, the New York Times bestseller list, as well as in countries across South America, Europe and Asia. It has also been in the top five bestsellers in the UK and several other territories. It has amassed many and varied awards, ranging from literary prizes to readers choice awards to prizes voted on by booksellers. It was the only book to feature on both the USA and UK World Book Night Lists in 2012, and has been voted as Australian readers’ favourite book by iconic independent bookstore, Dymocks, three years running.
In 2013, The Book Thief was adapted to screen, directed by Emmy Award-winning Brian Percival (Downton Abbey) and shot in Berlin by Twentieth Century Fox. The cast was headlined by Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush (Shine, The King’s Speech) and Academy Award nominee Emily Watson (Breaking the Waves, Anna Karenina). It also cast Sophie Nelisse (Monsieur Lazhar), as Liesel Meminger.
The Guardian calls The Book Thief “a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told.” The New York Times: “Brilliant and hugely ambitious…the kind of book that can be life-changing.” The Age: “an original, moving, beautifully written book.”
In 2014, Zusak received the American Library Association’s Margaret Edwards award for significant and lasting contribution to young adult literature, for his body of work ranging from The Underdog up to The The Book Thief .
Markus Zusak grew up in Sydney, Australia, and still lives there with his wife and two children.
