really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, zines
Read in January, 2004

Engrossing and often gross stories about being a teacher's assistant for mentally-challenged children.

Dave Roche is not a perfect person, but he's clearly got guts to do this job. The situations he finds himself in - whether it's helping a kid in the bathroom or working with them on basic tasks that are beyond their capabilities - are hilarious and heartbreaking, and his low-key though seldom absent sense of humor makes even the difficult to read sections within On Subbing a joy.
