Julia Pandl owes her writing career to chemistry: After failing the course in high school, she decided to major in creative writing in college. For her subject, her debt is to her father: A hardworking Milwaukee restaurateur who commanded his Sunday brunch brigade of nine children, of whom Julia was the youngest, with the aplomb of an admiral at sea in a storm. Her memoir of her pancakes and bacon apprenticeship manages to be charming, hilarious, and touching, even as it exuberantly conveys its gentle lessons about rites of passage. A trade paperback and NOOK Book original; editor's recommendation.
