"I started working in the fields when I was five. After that, I worked construction for thirty years. Eight years ago, I was between jobs and I wanted to do something useful, so I started going to school. It took me 8 years to get through middle school, because I could only go to classes when work was slow, but I finished with a 9.3 out of 10. Now I’m moving on to high school. The toughest part is Algebra."
Tomorrow John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats joins us to talk about his new novel, Wolf in White Van. We’ll also talk about his love of comic books, his chaotic and troubled childhood, and how he came to love metal.
