Registration required. This book discussion at L.Woods features: Studs Terkel’s Working: A Graphic Adaptation by Harvey Pekar. Chicago legend Studs Terkel depicted the working lives of ordinary Americans with unsurpassed dignity and frankness in his 1972 classic Working. Three decades later, Harvey Pekar introduced Working to a new generation in comic book form. Pekar enlisted both established comics veterans and some of the genre’s brightest new talent as contributors. Their diverse styles illuminate 28 of Terkel’s original interviews with workers, offering a perfect introduction to the graphic genre; according to Roger Ebert, it’s “the essence of Studs, seen from a new angle.”
