Studs Terkel is the author of eleven books of oral history, including Hope Dies Last, Working, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Good War". In 2003 he was awarded the National Book Critics Circle Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award.From AudioFile:
Because this book involves interviews with black and white adults and young people, spoken word is the perfect vehicle to communicate the diverse feelings about the "American obsession." This is a poignant and emotional journey with a master interviewer who gets people to share their innermost thoughts. Every interview is delivered authentically, with voices and accents conveying the emotions, experiences and histories of each speaker. Some are so wonderful; they merit listening several times. Terkel and the multi-voiced narrators make this an unforgettable, and perhaps even an opinion-altering, experience. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
