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. Download and start listening now!
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.
