The Book Thief – Film

Some photos have been released from the set of this book adaption. Of course the casting for this was very exciting and gives great hope for the quality of film we will end up with.







The Book Thief

The very popular book The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is being made into a film. A touching and lyrical book it will be interesting how it transfers to the big screen. At this stage what has been released is casting news: Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and newcomer Sophie Nelisse making her English speaking film debut.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie

Now I had this great idea to put in one post a bunch of trailers from a wide variety of my have Aussie authors…but then I struck a problem, there just aren’t that many clips out there.

So instead I will list for you just a few Aussie authors worth checking out, if you haven’t already, and leave it at that.

In no particular order and by all means not a comprehensive list, (the heat here today is over the old hundred mark and my brain is trying to pretend it is somewhere cool).

Michael Pryor

Marianne de Pierres

Jackie French

Anthony Eaton

Marcus Zusak

Michael Gerard Bauer

Wendy Harmer

Cath Crowley

Lili Wilkinson

Margo Lanagan

Lian Tanner

James Roy

Kate Forsyth

Andy Griffiths

Morris Gleitzman

And then of course once I started thinking about Aussie authors I wanted to add, the list kept getting longer and then I could find more clips but not necessarily trailers and so I will leave you with just a few and apologise to anyone I didn’t add by saying it’s only because my brain is sweating.
