Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: With InstaRead Chapter-by-Chapter Summaries, you can get the essence of a book in 30 minutes or less. We read every chapter and summarize it in one or two paragraphs so you can get the information contained in the book at a faster rate. This is an InstaRead Summary of Still Life with Bread Crumbs: A Novel by Anna Quindlen. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary. No Outlets Rebecca Winter is startled by what sounds like a gunshot in the middle of the night. She is living in a run-down cottage on a mountainside in rural New York State. Day by day, she finds herself discovering what is wrong with her new surroundings. Since there are no electrical outlets in her bedroom, she has no lamp at her bedside. She looks around in the darkness, trying to get her bearings. She notices a new smell as she rolls over in bed and thinks of all the other smells at the cottage: skunk, trampled plants, and mildew, to name a few. She tries to convince herself that she isn't afraid, but her entire body is tense. The quiet of the country setting where she doesn't have a cellphone signal is not peaceful to her, but unnerving. The noise above crashes on and on and the smell grows stronger. She remembers the events of the day. She had heard a skittering sound in her attic and gone to town to talk to an exterminator. The exterminator had referred her to a roofing guy. The roofer had inspected the attic and let her know that she had a racoon in her attic as well as a hole in her flashing. The roofer baited a trap and put it up in the attic. Lying in the darkness alone, Rebecca realizes that the sounds she has mistaken for gunshots are actually the sounds of the racoon thrashing around overhead in the trap. Rebecca wonders how she wound up there. How She Wound Up There - The Inspirational Version Two months before her sixtieth birthday, Rebecca won the prestigious J.P. Bradley Prize for an artist whose body of work illuminated the human condition. Rebecca is a photographer, and the first female and youngest winner of the prize. She feels that her heyday was over once she won the award. She had known for a while that her popularity was declining based upon the reduced royalty checks and fewer invitations and reactions when she introduced herself. Her agent, Tori Grzyjk, was scouting new talent, and Rebecca knew that she had become old talent. Rebecca's actual prize was a painting of a red barn and $1,000. She was very happy to win the money. On her way to the restroom that evening, she had seen an index card on the bulletin board for a charming country cottage for rent. She calculated her expenses the next morning and determined that if she rented out her apartment in New York, she would be able to afford the cottage, pay her mother's nursing home fees, her father's rent, and her health insurance premiums. She might even have some money left over to put away for emergencies and retirement. She also figured that living in a quaint country cottage would inspire her. Changes of scenery always inspired people, and everyone was waiting for her to be inspired again. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
