Markus Frank Zusak, Australian author (b. June 23, 1975,) grew up hearing stories about Germany in World War II, and decided to portray characters who rebelled against the rules of the Nazis.
Death is the narrator of the beautifully crafted book The Book Thief. Set during World War II outside Munich Germany, this is the story of Liesel Meminger, a 9-year-old foster child who steals books to feed her soul, and to share with others.
