9780099591696: Still Life with Bread Crumbs

LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2014

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

Review:

"[ 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)

"Focused on a few characters, this is engaging, immaculately constructed storytelling, with a warm message about the chance of happiness later in life" ( Guardian)

" Quindlen has made a home at the top of the bestsellers lists with novels that capture the grace and frailty of everyday life, and her latest work is sure to take her there again. With spare, elegant prose, she crafts a poignant glimpse into the inner life of an aging woman who discovers that reality contains much more color than her own celebrated black-and-white images." ( Library Journal)

" Quindlen has always excelled at capturing telling details in a story, and she does so again in this quiet, powerful novel, showing the charged emotions that teem beneath the surface of daily life." ( Publisher’s Weekly)

" A Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist and star in the pantheon of domestic fiction ( Every Last One, 2010), Quindlen presents instantly recognizable characters who may be appealingly warm and nonthreatening, but that only serves to drive home her potent message that it’s never too late to embrace life’s second chances." ( Booklist)
