Coming of Age: The Story of Our Century by Those Who’ve Lived It.Studs Terkel
Arguably the century’s most gifted chronicler of what Americans really think, Studs Terkel has been called “a national resource. . . who gets to the deeper heart of our history and our national life” by John Kenneth Galbraith. Terkel’s widely praised, best-selling books Hard Times, Working, Race, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Good War” probe the innermost attitudes in this country toward the Great Depression, work, race, and World War II.
