Maritus Zusak: “And We Climbed Out of Those Shower Facilities”


Photographer Unknown, (The Morning Shower)

When their bodies had finished scouring for gaps in the door, their souls rose up. When their fingernails had scratched at the wood and in some cases were nailed into it by the sheer force of desperation, their spirits came toward me, into my arms, and we climbed out of those shower facilities, onto the roof and up, into eternity’s certain breadth. They just kept feeding me. Minute after minute. Shower after shower.”

Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
