There are a few flat, expository moments in the book, as when Zachter moves beyond the immediacy of the uncles, the bakery, and old New York, leaves behind questions of money and family, and recaps how he met his wife and what his in-laws are like. Yet this narrator is a nice man. He's engaging. He's funny. (Listening to his father and uncles evade each other's questions, he writes, "I sat there wondering what would happen if someone answered a question with something other than another question.") Readers will no doubt enjoy spending time with him even in those few scenes in which he moves away from the insightful explorations of money, faith, inheritance, and times past.
