I’ve told you on an earlier occasion about Markus Zusak’s beautiful novel, The Book Thief. On tonight’s excellent ABC radio programme, The Lyric Voice, you can hear an excerpt from Zusak’s novel, accompanied by a very moving performance of Arvo Pärt’s Spiegel im Spiegel. You can listen to the programme here (in Real Player) or here (in Windows Media). The Zusak reading begins at 28:20 into the programme.
