Review: Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen

Still Life with Bread Crumbs - Anna Quindlen

This book is a summary of all the things I dislike about modern day Romanticism. It fetishizes nature and makes out those who live in rural areas to be a less racist noble savage. While I appreciate the depiction of older women, especially older women artists that made their own way and explore gender roles in their work, the rest of the novel didn't work for me.
