Summary At nearly 95, Studs Terkel has written about everyone's life, it seems, but his own. Here he offers a memoir which takes us back to his childhood, describing the hectic life of a family trying to earn a living in Chicago,his experiences as a poll watcher charged with stealing votes for the Democratic machine, as a young theatergoer, and, eventually, as an actor, radio personality, and oral historian. Finally, he discusses his involvement with progressive politics, which led to his being blacklisted during the McCarthy era.
