Anna Quindlen is back with ‘Still Life with Bread Crumbs’

New York Times best-selling author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anna Quindlen is back in the public eye with her seventh novel, “Still Life With Bread Crumbs” (Random House, $26, 272 pages). It’s a comfortable love story with a happy ending, something of a first in Quindlen’s oeuvre.

If the story were a fabric, it would be flannel. Manhattan photographer and feminist Rebecca Winter is 60, with a career and a bank balance on the wane. To save money and regroup, she subleases her apartment and moves sight-unseen into a ramshackle cottage in rural upstate New York. There, she meets a roofer named Jim Bates, whose straightforward view of the world captivates the newcomer from the big city. Between her relationship with him and a mysterious discovery she makes in the woods, her career is refreshed and her life pirouettes onto another plane.
