    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.

    Some days Nora Nolan thinks that she and her husband, Charlie, lead a charmed life - except when there’s a crisis at work, a leak in the roof at home, or a problem with their twins at college. And why not? New York City was once Nora’s dream destination, and her clannish dead-end block has become a safe harbor, a tranquil village amid the urban craziness. Then one morning she returns from her run to discover that a terrible incident has shaken the neighborhood, and the fault lines begin to open: on the block, at her job, especially in her marriage.

    Rebecca Winter steht an einem Wendepunkt: Von ihrem Mann ist sie geschieden, für ihren erwachsenen Sohn nicht mehr unentbehrlich und als Künstlerin hat sie längst ihren Zenit überschritten. Jahrelang lebte die berühmte Fotografin sorglos von den üppigen Einkünften eines Schnappschusses. Aber nun ist der Geldstrom versiegt. Notgedrungen beschließt sie, ihr New Yorker Apartment zu vermieten und für ein Jahr in ein kleines Haus fernab der Stadt zu ziehen. Der unfreiwillige Landaufenthalt ist kein Spaziergang im Central Park - und doch beschert er Rebecca eine unverhoffte Liebe, neue Inspiration und den Mut, unbekannte Wege zu beschreiten.
