Still Life with Bread Crumbs

Anna Quindlen

60-year-old divorced photographer Rebecca Winter was once well-known for her “Kitchen Counter” series: black-and-white photographs capturing the small details of domestic life, like her famous “Still Life with Bread Crumbs.” But now her success and her income have faded, and she’s sublet her big-city apartment in Manhattan and moved to a remote cabin in the woods. A need for home repairs leads her to bird-watching roofer Jim Bates, whose quiet companionship proves to be just the balm she needs to fully embrace her unfamiliar surroundings. From the bestselling author of Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake (2012) and Every Last One (2010).
