Narrator Leon Nixon delivers author Terry's style flawlessly. With his deep voice and, at times, laconic pace, Nixon narrates with a nuanced tone that draws listeners into the internal struggles of a mixed-race young man who grapples to find his place in the world. While routinely alienated by white people, he seems incapable of validating his blackness and finds himself directionless. These feelings lead him to alienate his punk band members, his colleagues where he slings coffee, and even the woman he is trying to court. Nixon's narration smoothly blends different speaking styles along with the protagonist's own inner monologues and shifting emotional states.
