Terkel, Studs. WILL THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN? : REFLECTIONS ON DEATH, REBIRTH, AND HUNGER FOR A FAITH. New York City, NY: The New Press, 2001. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. As New/As New. Signed.

The author's book-length account on subject. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A sustained, lyrical, wise, and profoundly moving meditation on the most fundamental issues that confront every human being, as only the unsurpassable Studs Terkel can do it. A lawyer by training, Terkel never practiced and instead devoted himself to what is now the most illustrious public-service career of any living American. A native of Chicago all his life and closely identified with his beloved city, it is easy to forget that the historian of the Common Man has written some of the finest books of our time, including this one. Described by Sir Jonathan Miller, the greatest living British polymath, as one of America's national treasures. Studs Terkel died on October 31, 2008 at the age of 96, yet another American icon who will not be replaced. A "must-have" title for Studs Terkel collectors. This copy is boldly and beautifully signed in black marker on the title page by Studs Terkel. It is signed directly on the page, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate, as some copies online are. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time even though it went into multiple subsequent printings. This is one of few signed copies of the true First Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction in 1985 for "The Good War". One of the greatest American writers of the 20th century and a national treasure. A flawless collectible copy.
