Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Dies

CHICAGO (AP) - Pulitzer Prize-winning author and activist Studs
Terkel has died at 96.

Colleague and close friend Thom Clark says Terkel's family
confirmed his death today.

Terkel's 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 the 1974 tome "Working."

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