|Plot Summary of Life, Death and Bialys|
As Flip Schaffer approached the end of his life from metastic cancer, he invited his semi-estranged adult son to join him in New York City at an upscale baking class designed for aspiring chefs. Mostly to humor his father, Dylan agreed. Seven months later the class is scheduled to begin and although he heads off to join his father, Dylan is not at all sure he is prepared for the experience.
Memoirs can be tricky. Eccentric pastry chefs; the crowded, hot and humid streets of New York; a less than glamorous hotel; memories of a mentally unstable mother and an absent father; a tenuous rebuilding of the ties between father and son, all interspersed with recipies for bread.
