Like Chuck Klosterman in Fargo Rock City, Nivena€™s talented voice perfectly captures the pain, joy, and shame of going through adolescence in Americaa€™s heartland, making a funny, touching, and universal experience.Our teacher, Mr. Kemper, had unnaturally black hair that shone blue in the light like crow feathers, and he wore ...
