nicholson baker“Nobody expected most of them to do academic work, it seemed, because long ago they’d been labeled as kids with ‘special needs’–even though in fact they were, judging by their vocabulary, their temperament, and their fluent way with irony, normal American high schoolers. They weren’t masterminds, but that wasn’t why they were in this room–they were here because they quietly refused to do work that they hated.”

–Nicholson Baker, from “Substitute” (2016).
