by Mort Zachter

Mort Zachter grew up in Brooklyn, in the 1960s, and lived with his parents in a small tenement apartment. His mother, Helen, worked in her brothers' bakery where day-old bread was sold. Nothing was ever baked in this shop. Uncle Harry and Uncle Joe kept the store open seven days a week.
The family struggled to make ends meet. Zachter put himself through school and got help, financially, from relatives and loans.
Everything changed with just one phone call.
Dough is a quirky, funny story.
A terrific read!
