Description

A Pulitzer Prize winner interviews workers, from policemen to piano tuners: "Magnificent... To read it is to hear America talking." -- The Boston Globe

A National Book Award Finalist and New York Times bestseller

Studs Terkel's classic oral history Working is a compelling look at jobs and the people who do them. Consisting of over one hundred interviews with everyone from a gravedigger to a studio head, this book provides a "brilliant" and enduring portrait of people's feelings about their working lives. This edition includes a new foreword by New York Times journalist Adam Cohen (Forbes).

"Splendid... Important... Rich and fascinating... The people we meet are not digits in a poll but real people with real names who share their anecdotes, adventures, and aspirations with us." -- Business Week

"The talk in Working is good talk -- earthy, passionate, honest, sometimes tender, sometimes crisp, juicy as reality, seasoned with experience." -- The Washington Post
