"Internationally acclaimed author Markus Zusak was born June 23, 1975. His mother, of German descent, and his father, of Austrian descent, inspired his writing in ways that only parents who have witnessed some of humanity’s greatest crimes can."
Markus is my favourite author because of his writing style. In The Book Thief, what really took me away and actually made it become my favourite book ever was because of the writing and the metaphors that were in it.
Not only is Markus probably THE most attractive writer that I have ever been blessed to see, but he is the most beautiful writer.
