Blurb: 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. (Hutchinson, January 2014)

Rebecca Abrams, The Financial Times

Still Life with Breadcrumbs is essentially a romantic comedy and Quindlen is entirely mistress of her art. The reader is never too worried that Winter’s future will remain as cold and comfortless as her present. It is more a question of how things will all come right, what else will go deliciously wrong in the meantime, and when and in what form Rebecca Winter’s star will, as it surely must, shine again.”

Wendy Holden, The Daily Mail

“While there’s a nice romance and some heartwarming rustic characters, the great interest of this gently satirical novel is its portrait of success in decline.”
