  Studs Terkel
by sambarnett

The master of oral history and a living, walking, breathing, talking institution! Studs has interviewed just about everybody, the famous and ordinary alike. A stalwart on the Chicago media scene since the '50s, the 90 year old shows no sign of slowing down. I was fortunate to meet him this year, what a thrill!!!

   All his books are great and his most recent, 2001's Will The Circle Be Unbroken: Reflections on Death, Rebirth, and Hunger for a Faith, is unbelievably powerful. Reading Studs Terkel will increase your knowledge and understanding of USA and its people immensely.
