'The Book Thief'

"It's just a small story really, about, among other things: a girl. Some words. An accordionist. Some fanatical Germans. A Jewish fist fighter. And quite a lot of thievery," modestly proffers the voice of Death in The Book Thief, Markus Zusak's bestselling historical epic. 

The novel was first published in 2005 in Zusak’s native Australia, and internationally in 2006; it has since been translated into more than 30 languages, has sold eight million copies around the world, and has seen significant crossover readership. And now, on November 15, the film version arrives in theaters.
