With grace and compassion, Terkel evokes a mosaic of memories from artists, politicians, businessmen, writers, racketeers, speakeasy operators, strikers, farmers, people who were just kids and those who remember losing a fortune. Now, in a beautiful new illustrated edition, Studs's interviews are complemented by Farm Security Administration photographs from the Library of Congress.'
