Still Life with Bread Crumbs

Windmill Books

Still Life with Bread Crumbs begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof. Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.
Brilliantly written, powerfully observed, Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a deeply moving and often very funny story of unexpected love, and a stunningly crafted journey into the life of a woman, her heart, her mind, her days, as she discovers that life is a story with many levels, a story that is longer and more exciting than she ever imagined.
"[ A] marvelous romantic comedy of manners ... Taken as a whole, Quindlen's writings represent a generous and moving interrogation of women's experience across the lines of class and race ... [ Still Life with Bread Crumbs ] proves all the more moving because of its light, sophisticated humor . Quindlen's least overtly political novel, it packs perhaps the most serious punch ... Quindlen has delivered a novel that will have a staying power all its own. " The New York Times Book Review
