Studs Terkel in Springfield

There are certain projects that set a fan’s heart afire.  The Simpsons : An Uncensored, Unauthorized History  is one of them.  John Ortved’s ambitious undertaking is  to piece together the history of one of the few programs that’s been both a global hit and  a monument to how smart and satisfying television can be.

The book’s officially out next week, and while we’ve only just cracked ours open (still warm, like a bag of Lard Lad donuts), we look forward to finding out everything we can about the genesis of Springfield.
