Book Overview
First published in 1970, Studs Terkel's bestselling Hard Times has been called a huge anthem in praise of the American spirit (Saturday Review) and an invaluable record (The New York Times) . With his trademark grace and compassion, Terkel evokes a mosaic of memories from those who were richest to those who were destitute: politicians, businessmen, artists and writers, racketeers, speakeasy operators, strikers, impoverished farmers, people who were just kids, and those who remember losing a fortune. Now, in a handsome new illustrated edition, a selection of Studs's unforgettable interviews are complemented by images from another rich documentary trove of the Depression experience: Farm Security Administration photographs from the Library of Congress. Interspersed throughout the text of Hard Times , these breathtaking photographs by Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Jack Delano, and others expand the human scope of the voices captured in the book, adding a new dimension to Terkel's incomparable volume. Hard Times is the perfect introduction to Terkel's work for new readers, as well as a beautiful new addition to any Terkel library.
