Still Life with Bread Crumbs: A Novel

Still Life with Bread Crumbs is a gem of universal truths.

The New York Times : Second Shot (February 06, 2014)

In her new novel — a comedy in the style of Austen rather than a tragedy in that of McCarthy — she ultimately offers her heroine a life that amounts to much, a way to save both herself and someone else.

Quindlen's novel makes a case for seizing control of your life.
