Book Description: Tantor Media, Inc, United States, 2007. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 137 x 163 mm. Brand New. At nearly ninety-five, Studs Terkel has written about everyone s life, it seems, but his own. In Touch and Go, he offers a memoir that--embodying the spirit of the man himself--is youthful, vivacious, and enormous fun. Terkel begins by taking us back to his early childhood with his father, mother, and two older brothers, describing the hectic life of a family trying to earn a living in Chicago. He then goes on to recall his own experiences--as a poll watcher charged with stealing votes for the Democratic machine, as a young theatergoer, and eventually as an actor himself in both radio and on the stage--giving us a brilliant and often hilarious portrait of the Chicago of the 1920s and 1930s. He tells of his beginnings as a disc jockey after World War II and as an interviewer and oral historian--a craft he would come to perfect and indeed personify. Finally, he discusses his involvement with progressive politics, leading inevitably to his travails during the McCarthy period, when he was blacklisted and thrown out of work despite having become by then one of the country s most popular television hosts. Fans of Studs Terkel will find much to discover in these remarkable reminiscences. Others will be captivated to learn of the unique and eclectic life of one of America s greatest living legends.
