Maya Angelou
Biography & Memoir
Aug 29, 2018
When you discover that a person has written six books of autobiography, you’re bound to wonder: Is she just a prolific narcissist, or has she really lived a six-volume life? If she’s Maya Angelou, there’s no doubt that the latter is the case: So compelling is her private story, so extravagant her public gifts, so generous her embrace of every level of experience that six volumes hardly seem enough. These books—written over a span of thirty years—cover only half of the author’s remarkable life. In fact, the last volume ends with her just beginning to write the first.

Oh how I love Maya Angelou. Amazing writer, fantastic woman and wise poet, I always felt like she was speaking directly to me in her memoirs.

It vividly describes a time and experience that increasing becomes more obscure. I think that this is a book that is only going to grow in significance as time goes on.
