Reading for Me

The Books I Have Read…..Just for Me

#7: Still Life with Bread Crumbs (Anna Quindlen)

on May 17, 2014

A very busy spring semester brought my reading life to a complete halt.  As soon as one of the schools began finals, I made a much-needed trip to the library and came home with an armload of books.

The first book of the summer was Still Life with Bread Crumbs. The novel tells the story of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose career seems to be waning. As financial problems mount, Rebecca sublets her NYC apartment and moves into a tiny cabin in the country.  While hiking through the woods, the photographer encounters a series of white crosses that will ultimately become the basis of her next set of prints.  What initially appear to be randomly placed grave markers prove to be linked to a single story that impacts Rebecca’s world directly.

Laced with charming characters, exquisitely described locations, and an honest examination of contemporary success, Still Life is another wonderful novel from Quindlen that is certain to please her loyal fans.
