WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY ADAM COHEN OF THE Perhaps Studs Terkel's best-­known book, 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, from a policeman to a piano tuner, this book provides an enduring portrait of people's feelings about their working lives. "A powerful, original, indescribable and incredible book... Only an interviewer of genius, exploiting the tape recorder as hardly anyone else has done, could possibly have brought it forth.­" —Lewis Mumford "A magnificent book... a work of art. To read it is to hear America talking.­" - "Splendid... Important... Rich and fascinating... The people we meet are not digits in a poll but real people with real names who share their ancedotes, adventures, and aspirations with us.­" - "The talk in is good talk--­earthy, passionate, honest, sometimes tender, sometimes crisp, juicy as reality, seasoned with experience.­" - "Nothing could tell our children's children who and how and what we were the way Studs Terkel will. Is it possible the great American novelist is Terkel?­" -­Murray Kempton
