Book Description: New Press. 1 Paperback(s), 2007. soft. Book Condition: New. By the time he had reached the age of 95, Studs Terkel had written about everyone's life, it seemed, but his own. Fortunately, he did have a chance to write this pleasantly rambling memoir shortly before his death in 2008. Terkel begins with his early childhood and experience of a family trying to earn a living in Chicago in the 1920s. He recalls his early experiences as a law student during the Depression and an actor on radio and the stage, and his brief, humorous stint in the Air Force. Terkel tells of his broadcast beginnings as a disc jockey after World War II and as an interviewer and oral historian, and discusses his involvement with progressive politics, leading to his travails during the McCarthy era when he was blacklisted and thrown out of work despite having become one of the country's most popular television performers. Through it all, Terkel reflects upon the hundreds of people and events that influenced him, his enduring love affair with Chicago, and his lifelong concern for the lives of the uncelebrated, leading to his giving a voice to the face in the crowd. "His lifetime has spanned the boom times of the Twenties, the Depression, World War II, the McCarthy red-hunting era, the civil rights movement, the hippie activists of the late Sixties, and on into present times. By now, the man requires an adjective of his own—Terkelesque."—Margaret Atwood 269. Bookseller Inventory # 33154
