Pub. Date:
Bestselling oral history of what it was like to age in the 20th century - as told by those who lived through almost all of it - published to coincide with Terkel's 95th birthday year. in many ways a sequel to Studs' most famous book, Working, COMING OF AGE weaves the voices of 74 very different people - from an angry farmer to a resigned bank president; and those who were at the vanguard of their movements, be they trade unionists, gay rights activists or artists. Indispensable oral history from the undisputed king of the genre.
