Studs Terkel was a master storyteller, or maybe story-listener. His oral histories showed that with the right ear, he could make an interview special. He got to the heart of things and to the hearts of people. His book "Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do," published in 1974, became a smash hit and later on inspired a Broadway musical.  What Studs Terkel uncovers in his book is a kind of a living theater, captured on a tape recorder, transcribed and then edited down so that the character, tone, introspection and drama are retained. For the subjects, and for the reader, the book is a deep penetration of American thought and feeling and it evokes the lives of more than 130 men and women in their own words: candid, insightful and honest.

Être un polyglotte est une lutte éternelle.
