Studs Terkel’s Chicago

More Info


Chicago was home to the Pulitzer Prize winning Studs Terkel, who moved there in 1922 and made it his home until his death in 2008 at the age of 96. A tribute to the ‘Second City’ that is part history, part memoir and 100% Studs Terkel, the book is infused with anecdotes, memories and reflections that celebrate the great city of Chicago. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs that perfectly capture Chicago’s unique beauty; here is a splendid evocation of Studs’ hometown in all of its glory and imperfection.
