Summary
In this award-winning memoir, Zachter recounts now he was able to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time writer through an unexpected inheritance from immigrant uncles who ran a day-old bread store in Manhattan's Lower East side. He learned that they made considerable dough, not from the bakery they ran, but from stocks and bonds. This is an engaging twist of a story on the American dream and family relations.
