Oct 31st, 2008 | CHICAGO -- 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."

No cultured Chicagoans around?

Ebert writes a solid remembrance.
