Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

This major new work includes more than 40 never-before-published interviews in which the Pulitzer Prize-winning oral historian elicits frank, funny, and surprising conversations about the past half century of dramatic arts.


Review:

"THE SPECTATOR, in fact, is a very bad book-inane, lazily assembled and without point....Terkel doesn't press or pursue-he often seems instead to fixate on some specific word or detail, thereby missing the more general flow of thought altogether-and so permits most his interlocutors to lapse into that familiar conversational ploy, the self-referential bromide."

Erik Tarloff, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 09/12/1999

Review:

"The author's voice is also an obvious and dominant factor in this anthology, not only in the direction of the interviewer's questions, but in the complex editing process undertaken for the book. At one point in his long interview with the witty and entertaining Carol Channing, for example, she mentions Tallulah Bankhead, and Terkel inserts two paragraphs of an interview with Bankhead before continuing his talk with Channing."

Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune, 9/26/1999
