    R.I.P. Studs Terkel

    Author, activist Studs Terkel dies at 96 - TODAY: Book news

    Pulitzer Prize-winning author and activist Studs Terkel has died at age 96.

    Colleague and close friend Thom Clark said Terkel's son, Dan Terkell, confirmed his death. He died at home Friday afternoon, Clark said.

    Studs Terkel is best known for his street-wise portrayals of the working class. He contrasted rich and poor along the same Chicago street in the 1966 novel "Division Street: America," explored the Depression in 1970's "Hard Times" and chronicled how people felt about their jobs in 1974's "Working."

    He won a Pulitzer in 1985 for his remembrances of World War II in his novel "The Good War."

    Dan Terkell issued a statement through Clark.

    "My dad led a long full eventful, sometimes tempestuous, but very satisfying life," Terkell said, describing his father's death as "peaceful, no agony. This is what he wanted."
