Studs Strikes Gold

January 04, 1987

Being completely obsessed by Chicago, I much enjoyed your piece on Studs Terkel. As for the University of Chicago, I didn't learn of it until I got into the Army and a guy in the barracks told me he went there and I said he was lying because there was no such place. So much for West Side boys. As for Terkel, well, yes, my Chicago is the one I took away with me, but I don't think I could feel the same way about the city if Studs, Nelson Algren and their sort weren't out there brooding and sentimentalizing and being bitter about it.
