Studs Flops

From an appreciation of the late, great Studs Terkel by Andre Schiffrin, his editor at The New Press. At the Chicago Historical Society you can listen to Terkelís interviews.

Tellingly, the only time Studs failed was when I suggested he try a book on power. The people he approached were such accomplished liars that none of them would even admit that they held power. It was the one project we had to give up.

Of course you don't talk to them, you talk to their valets.
