Ja. "Bridge of Clay", erscheint vorraussichtlich Ende des Jahres. Auf seiner Website hat er geschrieben: "I'm writing a book called Bridge of Clay - about a boy building a bridge and wanting it to be perfect. He wants to achieve greatness with this bridge, and the question is whether it will survive when the river floods. That's all I can say about it for now - not out of secrecy, but you just don't know what direction a book is going to take, no matter how well you've planned." Ist zwar etwas länger her, aber mehr wurde bisher nicht preisgegeben.

Falsche Quelle, das ist aus einem Interview mit dem britischem Guardian hervorgegangen, auf seiner Website ist dies hier aufzufinden: "Speaking of the next time around, I’d also like to tell you a bit about what I'm working on at the moment. For three years now, whenever people have asked the terrifying question – “So what’s your new book about?” – I’ve stuttered my way through a whole range of incoherent responses. I’ve talked about a murderer. I’ve talked about a mule and five brothers, and a girl on a roof.

Of course, everything I just mentioned plays its part in the new book, but not one of them is the heart of it. I guess sometimes it's easier to tell people what surrounds a story, rather than the story itself.

When all is said and done, I think I finally see that the book I'm writing is actually simple:

It's about a boy.
His name is Clay.
He's building a bridge.
And he wants that bridge to be something truly great and miraculous.

Now I just have to finish writing it, and I'll do everything I can to make it right."
