Still Life With Bread Crumbs
January 2014 - Random House

A superb love story from Anna Quindlen, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rise and Shine, Blessings, and A Short Guide to a Happy Life

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.

Brilliantly written, powerfully observed, Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a deeply moving and often very funny story of unexpected love, and a stunningly crafted journey into the life of a woman, her heart, her mind, her days, as she discovers that life is a story with many levels, a story that is longer and more exciting than she ever imagined.


  1. I have this one queued up to post in a few weeks. I just heard about it yesterday....I love Anna Quindlen's books!

  2. This one sounds like an interesting story! I like the US cover with the light color and pretty flowers!
    Here's my pick!

  3. I enjoy novels by English authors, and this romance does look like one I'd like reading. I like the UK cover as it is rather striking!

  4. Yay!!! I love her books and can't wait to get a copy of this new one. For once, I think I prefer the US cover over the UK. That rarely ever happens!

    Thanks for the heads-up on this book!

  5. Thank you for the introduction!

  6. Can't wait for this! At the RH OPen House last fall, Quindlen talked about working on her final edits. I'm glad it's ready to go. I usually prefer the UK covers, but I like the US version this time.

  7. She's one of my favorite authors. Will be waiting for this one...I prefer the UK cover.

    My WoW:

  8. I have not read any Anna Quindlen, but have several on my TBR list. I guess I had better get busy, judging from the comments here. I think I like the UK cover best.

  9. Wow, I'm going right over to Amazon to preorder this! I love Quindlen's books and it's been too long since the last one. Enjoy!


  10. I am adding this to my TBR. Thank you for the introduction. It sounds fabulous.
    I am glad that you included the synopsis for the first installment. I would like to try the series. Great pick.
    What I'm Waiting For...

  11. Great find, Diane! I've enjoyed many of Quindlen's novels. This one sounds very good.

  12. I have read every single one of Anna Quindlen's books, even the non-fictions and memoirs, so I am psyched to see a new book on the horizon from her. Thanks so much for pointing this one out to us.

  13. Love Anna Quindlen's books. I'll be watching for this one. I prefer the US cover - very pretty.

  14. This sounds very good. I have not read any of her books, but may start with this one. I like the UK cover.

  15. Thanks for all of the comments -- I forgot to mention that I am partial to the vibrant UK cover, but think the US is attractive as well:) Excited to read this one...but we have a wait.

  16. Once again I did not realize she had a new one coming out. I just love her writing. As for the cover I like both but I think the US one is more eye catching.
