International best-selling author of KRAKATOA, Simon Winchester tells us about another geological cataclysm, this time about the San Francisco earthquake of 1907. He outlines how plate tectonics caused the disaster and how human mistakes made it much, much worse. And lawyer and author Dylan Schaffer usually writes legal whodunits. But with his memoir, LIFE, DEATH and BIALYS, he moves into new territory, solving the mystery of his father and his relationship to him through the medium of a course at the French Culinary Institute. His father, ill with terminal cancer, invited Schaffer to take a course there, and, much to his own surprise, Schaffer agreed. He tells us what he learned about his father and himself.
