About this item

A superb love story from Anna Quindlen, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rise and Shine, Blessings, and A Short Guide to a Happy Life

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.

Praise for the novels of Anna Quindlen

"Packs an emotional punch... Quindlen succeeds at conveying the transience of everyday worries and the never-ending boundaries of a mother's love".-- The Washington Post, about Every Last One

"New friends await readers... characters you will delight in getting to know and miss once you've finished the book".-- St. Louis Post-Dispatch, about Rise and Shine

"[Quindlen] writes passionately... painstakingly uncovering all the intensity, suspicion and primitive love that bonds mothers and daughters".-- The Boston Globe, about One True Thing

"A polished gem of a novel... lovingly crafted, beautifully written".-- The Miami Herald, about Blessings

"Mesmerizing... impossible to put down".-- St. Louis Post-Dispatch, about Black and Blue

"A small triumph... elaborate and playful... honest and deeply felt... Here is the Quindlen wit, the sharp eye for details of class and manners, the ardent reading of domestic lives".-- The New York Times, about Object Lessons
