At the arrival gate of the flight, a skinny kid who appeared no more than 19 or 20 reached out for my torn duffel bag.

Book has such great insight to others. Love the stories and glad I grabbed this one to keep on a bookshelf. Great reread along with Working.

MrRipper
The first time I saw Studs Terkel he was being interviewed on national television as to some of his writings. He was so down to earth, personable, and funny that I enjoyed listening to every word of the answers to questions asked. I bought his book. He wrote about differing personalities and places where he enjoyed having been. It was most interesting to be vicariously on these trips with him. He charms his listeners and readers and audiance. His book is a good investment for a rainy day.

Garne
Extraordinary opportunity for the reader to explore the United States in the 20th Century through the distinctive voices of citizens from every walk of life. No one ever interviewed everyday people better than Terkel.

Great read. Classic.

Gritty journalist/author Studs Terkel (1912-2008) spent decades letting people tell their stories, and the result is more than a dozen solid oral histoires. This 1980 effort is one of his best, with over 100 Americans talking about their lives and that ever-elusive American Dream. Most interviewees try defining the dream, but focus more effectively on their work, successes, and (often) frustrations. Ms. USA (1973) discusses the shallowness of her title. Frank Wills describes a lack of opportunities after uncovering the Watergate break-in. Anti-nuclear activist Sam Lovejoy describes opposing new power plants in Massachusetts. Businessman Ted Turner discusses his upcoming news network (CNN), while a football lineman confesses using false anger to inspire his game. We hear from business leaders, liberal activists (a Terkel staple), the poor of Appalachia, and aged children of immigrants (who also remember their parents). Also chipping in are street-wise community workers, a 1963 Civil Rights marcher, and politicians as diverse as Detroit Mayor Coleman Young and right-wing Senator Jesse Helms (both are less embarrassing than expected).

As usual, many of Terkel's interviewees are from Chicago (plus Kentucky, Oregon, and New England) and on balance they tilt a bit leftwards with skepticism towards the establishment. Still, this is an interesting look at, about, and from ordinary Americans. Readers should also see Terkel's other top efforts, such as WORKING, THE GOOD WAR (World War II), and HARD TIMES (Great Depression).
