Description

This "electrifying" collection of unpublished work demonstrates the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's "great gift for tapping into the lifeblood of America" (Booklist).

Millions of Studs Terkel fans have come to know the prize-winning oral historian through his landmark books -- "The Good War", Hard Times, Working, Will the Circle Be Unbroken?, and many others. Few people realize, however, that much of Studs's best work was not collected into these thematic volumes and has, in fact, never been published. P.S. brings together these significant and fascinating writings for the first time.

The pieces in P.S. reflect Terkel's wide-ranging interests and travels, as well as his abiding connection to his hometown, Chicago. Here we have a fascinating conversation with James Baldwin, possibly Terkel's finest interview with an author; pieces on the colorful history and culture of Chicago; vivid portraits of Terkel's heroes and cohorts (including an insightful and still timely interview with songwriter Yip Harburg, known for his "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime"); and the transcript of Terkel's famous broadcast on the Depression, the moving chronicle that would later develop into Hard Times.

A fitting postscript to a lifetime of listening, P.S. is a truly Terkelesque display of the author's extraordinary range of talent and the amazing people he spoke to.
