Allan Fuks is the son of Russian immigrants. He grew up all over the place: in New York City and Northern California, before finally landing in suburban New Jersey. But no matter where he went, the taunting and bullying at school followed.

You see, Allan’s name is spelled a lot like the mother of all curse words.

He recently sat down with his middle school classmate, Spencer Katzman, to look back on their preteen years.
