Still Life with Bread Crumbs
Rebecca Winter was once a famous photographer, and, with any luck, she will be again. Having achieved surprising early success with her feminist Kitchen Counter collection, Rebecca, now 60, finds herself on fame and fortune's flip side. With her former torrent of royalties dwindling to a trickle, Rebecca has been forced to give up her perfect Manhattan apartment for a paltry upstate cabin, and with marauding raccoons, stray dogs, and trigger-happy hunters, life in the country is proving to be no walk in Central Park.
Described by the New York Times as "a marvelous romantic comedy of manners", Anna Quindlen has given readers an engaging look at life's second chances with her latest novel "Still Life with Bread Crumbs".
