About Still Life with Bread Crumbs
In Still Life with Bread Crumbs, the famous photographer Rebecca Winter has drifted from the spotlight and is now more inclined to think of herself as the Artist Formerly Known as Rebecca Winter. As her income dries up, she decides to leave behind the life she knows in New York City, sublet her apartment and move to a small, inexpensive cabin in the country where life slows down considerably. Power walks are replaced by shoveling snow; bagels from Zabar’s are now scones from Tea for Two (and a friendship with its owner Sarah); and an ex-husband seems not such a great loss as a younger man comes into the picture.
