At age nearly 95, Studs Terkel has written about everyone's life, it seems, but his own. He begins by taking us back to his childhood, describing the hectic life of a family trying to earn a living in Chicago. He then goes on to his experiences--as a poll watcher charged with stealing votes for the Democratic machine, as a young theatergoer, and eventually as an actor himself in both radio and on the stage--giving us a portrait of the Chicago of the 1920s and 1930s. He tells of his beginnings as a disc jockey after World War II and as an interviewer and oral historian. Finally, he discusses his involvement with progressive politics, leading to his travails during the McCarthy period when he was blacklisted.
