This could have been merely an album of scraps compiled by a writer at the very end (Terkel died last year, at 96). And there are oddities in it, such as his memories of a Chicago childhood in the 1920s. And there are oddities in it, such as his memories of a Chicago childhood in the 1920s, written in a distanced style - he was never comfortable being the protagonist of a story rather than its reporter. A few fragments barely earn their keep with a single line, as when he writes of Edward Hopper, artist of darkness, that all he ever wanted was "to paint sunlight on the side of a house".

light read; some decent stories but not the best book I have read this year

Another amazing collection of work by Studs Terkel. In the light of the inauguration of Barack Obama, the most fascinating section is the interview with James Baldwin in 1961.
"Time is always now. I think everybody who's thought about his own life knows this. You know you don't make resolutions about something you're going to do next year. No. You decide to write a book? No. The book may be finished twenty years from now, but you've got to start it now."

The last section in the book is a transcript of the production of "Born to Live" which Studs played on his radio show on New Year's Day for 31 years. I was able to find it on line and listen. Here is one of the quotes of a prayer offered by Reverend William Sloane Coffin Jr in the production.
"Grant us grace to quarrel with the worship of success and power, with the assumption that people are less important than the jobs they hold. Grant us grace to quarrel with the mass culture that tends not to satisfy, but exploit the wants of people; to quarrel with those who pledge allegiance to one race, rather than the human race. Lord, grant us grace to quarrel with all that profanes, and trivializes, and separates men."

on every page, and it's the voice of a skilled reporter, egging out secrets from those reluctant to talk. And like a good radio interviewer, Studs keeps the emphasis on the person he's interviewing, not himself. But this book, his last, seems to be a transcription of some broadcasts, and, as such, lacks the punch that his other books have. It's an afterthought to his work, and worth reading for that reason alone, because, for a time, we had among us a gentle, self-made humanist, a remarkable man.

Studs was the greatest of Chicago's 20th century icons. Do take the time to read his last work - which encompassed various parts of his career. Definitely yet another must read.
