1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 2001. The author's book-length account on subject. One of Studs Terkel's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Studs Terkel's "Will The Circle Be Unbroken". His sustained, lyrical, wise, and profoundly moving meditation on the most fundamental issues that confront every human being, as only the unsurpassable Studs Terkel can do it. A lawyer by training, Terkel never practiced and instead devoted himself to what is now the most illustrious public-service career of any living American. A native of Chicago all his life and closely identified with his beloved city, it is easy to forget that the historian of the Common Man wrote some of the finest books of our time, including this one. Described by Sir Jonathan Miller, the greatest living British polymath, as one of America's national treasures. Studs Terkel died on October 31, 2008 at the age of 96, yet another American icon who will not be replaced. An absolute "must-have" title for Studs Terkel collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction in 1985 for "The Good War". One of the greatest American writers of the 20th century and a national treasure. A flawless copy.
