About the Author:

Studs Terkel is the author of ten books of oral history, including Working and the Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Good War." As a small boy, Terkel used to stand outside the Dreamland Ball Room in Chicago and listen to the spirited music of the New Orleans jazzmen who had come to town. He loved jazz then, and he still does.
